The SEFQ recently created a position to support women detainees at the Joliette institution in an effort to assert their rights and improve their living conditions in the detention. Lawyer specialized in carceral law, the protector's mandate is to diagnose the systemic problems facing women and to take concerted action to bring concrete, long-lasting changes in the lives of women prisoners.
