1. Violent offences include, for example, attempted murder, sexual assault, aggravated assault, common assault, robbery, kidnapping and extortion.
2. Property offences include, for example, break and enter, theft, arson, motor vehicle theft, fraud, possession of stolen property and mischief.
3. Other Criminal Code offences include violations such as failure to appear and breach of probation.
4. Other offences include, for example, drug-related offences, offences against the Youth Criminal Justice Act and other federal or provincial offences.
5. Data published by Alberta's Ministry of the Solicitor General and Public Security are lower than the data published by Statistics Canada due to different counting methodologies. The numbers in this table represent movement from one status in correctional services to another. For instance, an individual who moves from remand to sentenced custody is counted as one admission to remand and one admission to sentenced custody. Alberta uses a different methodology whereby an admission to custody is counted once, regardless of a change in status.
Note: An admission is counted each time a person begins any type of custody or community program. The same person can be included several times in the admission counts where the individual moves from one type of legal status to another or re-enters the system in the same year. Admissions that involved more than one offence are represented by the most serious offence. Excludes admissions in which the most serious offence was unknown. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
