On March 5, 2016, at about 8 p.m, a lockdown was put in place in the medium security unit at Bowden Institution as a precautionary measure after some inmates showed symptoms associated with influenza A/H1N1.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is working with health authorities in order to resolve the situation as soon as possible.

Visits have been suspended.

The safety and security of the institutions is the Correctional Service of Canada's (CSC) primary concern. Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
