SHARE

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of the Solicitor General have awarded EllisDon Infrastructure Justice to design, build, finance and maintain the Thunder Bay Correctional Complex project.

The new facility will replace the city's existing jail and correctional centre to support the ministry's strategy of replacing aging institutions to address health, safety, and security issues, including design, technology and space efficiencies. The new 345-bed, multi-purpose correctional facility will improve access to programming, living conditions, and education while updating automation and technology.

The correctional complex will be designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification, focusing on energy efficiency, healthy indoor environments, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

“A new correctional facility for Thunder Bay is a very important investment to enhance the facility's living conditions, security, technology, and space,” said Joey Comeau, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President, Capital at EllisDon. “We are honoured to be selected to design, build, finance and maintain the new Thunder Bay Correctional Complex project.”
