Lockdown Orderd at Millhaven Institution

A lockdown is in place at Millhaven Institution.

The lockdown was ordered around 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, so staff could conduct an exceptional search at the maximum security prison.

No reason was given for the lockdown, but according to the Correctional Service of Canada, the search was ordered to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates.

Normal operations, including visits, will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
