Jail Accountability and Information Line (JAIL)
The Jail Accountability and Information Line takes calls from prisoners and their loved ones from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. This line tracks issues experienced by people incarcerated at the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre, advocating for their needs to be met in a dignified and respectful manner, while connecting them to community supports for when they are released.
Donations to the Jail Hotline can be made by clicking the big yellow donate button and filling out a short form on Ottawa U’s donation website. CPEP uses the OttawaU donation page because they ensure that 100% of the donation is given to us, as opposed to other online donation platforms that take a cut of the donation. You can specify any donation amount by clicking in the “other amount” section of the form.
