Note: Excludes other types of sentences such as conditional sentence, restitution, absolute and conditional discharge, suspended sentence, community service order or prohibition order among others. Cases may involve more than one type of sentence, and/or other sentences not shown, therefore, percentages do not total 100%. A case is one or more charges against an accused person or company that were processed by the courts at the same time and received a final disposition. Counts are based on the most serious offence in a case. Excludes information from superior courts in Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan as well as municipal courts in Quebec due to the unavailability of data. Jurisdictional differences in the structure and operation of courts may have an impact on survey results. Therefore, any comparisons between jurisdictions should be made with caution.
