In 2018, the Canadian government invested millions into prison farms focused on commercial cow dairy and industrial goat dairy.
In 2019, concerned citizens and prisoners across Canada mailed 23,000 postcards to the Minister of Public Safety opposing the new prison farm model. This included the participation of countless individuals and 130 Postcard-A-Day Volunteers.
In 2021, following our Prison Farm Report and 50,000 signature petition, the Correctional Service of Canada announced the “temporary pause” of its Prison Industrial Goat Farm.
In 2022, CSC quietly commenced construction of dairy facility infrastructure at Joyceville Institution, scheduled for completion in 2024.
