Parkin is one of the companies behind the construction of the Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay, Ontario – a provincial jail that warehouses several hundreds of people on any given day, including migrants for the Canadian Border Services Agency on a contractual basis (see http://www.parkin.ca/projects/central-east-correctional-centre/). Parkin was also behind a study that recommended the replacement of the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre with a new and bigger provincial jail (see http://www.parkin.ca/2016/03/parkin-awarded-functional-program-for-adult-detention-centres/).
