Children of incarcerated parents are an often forgotten, invisible or ignored victim of the criminal justice system. It is unknown exactly how many children in Canada are affected by parental incarceration, but the numbers are undoubtedly very high. Based on the number of parents in prison, it was estimated back in 2007 that 357,604 Canadian children were affected by parental incarceration. With the increase in the prison population over the last decade, we expect that number is much higher.
