First British Columbia, and then Nova Scotia, recently ended immigration detention in provincial jails. See this Human Rights Watch story for more details.
If you were held in a prison for immigration-related purposes, you could be part of a class action lawsuit.
A proposed class action lawsuit has been started against the Government of Canada for people who were placed in prison by the Canada Border Services Agency ("CBSA"). You do not have to pay anything to join this class action. YOu also will not have to pay any money if the case is not successful. The lawyers will get paid only if the lawsuit is successful, and only at the end. See here for more information and who to contact.
