Offender Release

A Warrant Expiry Date is the date a criminal sentence officially ends, as imposed by the courts at the time of sentencing.

Neither the Correctional Services of Canada nor the National Parole Board has the legal authority to lengthen or shorten a court sentence. Offenders who reach Warrant Expiry having completed their entire sentence are no longer under the jurisdiction of the Correctional Services of Canada.

However, the vast majority of offenders will be returned to the community before warrant expiry with conditions and supervision for the safety of the community as well as assistance to the offender. Parole and Statutory Release are two of these early releases.
