B.C. Corrections Mail Policy

B.C. Corrections encourages family and friends to send mail as a way to maintain contact with inmates in custody. There are some rules about mail to ensure our correctional centres remain secure:

  • Only letters and photographs can be mailed.
  • Do not mail any personal items.
  • Mail will be searched.
  • Do not spray mail with any scents or decorate with glitter etc., as this may prevent your mail from being passed along.

Mail that doesn’t meet security guidelines may be returned.

See our directory for the mailing addresses of our correctional centres.
