National Parole Board / Commission nationale des libérations conditionelles
The National Parole Board (NPB) is an administrative tribunal that has exclusive authority under the Corrections and Conditional Release Act to grant, deny or revoke parole or, under certain circumstances, to order the detention of offenders subject to statutory release. This authority extends to all offenders in federal correctional institutions who are serving sentences of two years or more.
NPB also makes parole decisions for offenders serving sentences of less than two years in provincial and territorial prisons that do not have their own parole boards (only the provinces of Quebec and Ontario have their own parole boards).
Other NPB responsibilities include deciding on whether to issue, grant, deny or revoke a pardon under the Criminal Records Act (CRA) and making clemency recommendations to the Government of Canada.
