Canada: What a new report reveals about Manitoba sex offenders and victims

[ – 4/16/21]

WINNIPEG — A Manitoba committee tasked with determining if the public needs to be notified about a sex offender has released a report giving the province a look at the offenders and the victims involved.

The Community Notification Advisory Committee (CNAC) is a group of representatives from Manitoba Justice, corrections and Manitoba police agencies, along with medical or therapeutic practitioners and civilian members.

The committee was created in 1995 to review sex offender cases referred to it by police agencies, and recommend if the public should be notified about a sex offender.

On Friday, the committee released its report giving Manitobans a look at the cases it has reviewed.

CNAC has had 210 cases referred to it between June 1995 and the end of December 2019, which include 167 offenders – all of whom were men ranging from the ages of 16 to 81. Most had extensive criminal records involving sexual assaults or other violent crimes.

Of these men, 23 were referred to CNAC two times, eight were referred three times, and one person was referred to CNAC five times.

Most of the offenders (90) were labelled as sexual aggressors – someone whose victims are mostly adults. There were 73 who were labelled as pedophiles, and four were labelled as incest offenders – someone who targets relatives who are usually children.

In the majority (110) of the cases, the offenders were still incarcerated when the CNAC made its recommendations – though in one of the cases referred to the NAC was thrown out because the offender had left the province, and three other cases were not considered after being withdrawn by the lead police agency.

Of the 210 cases, CNAC has recommended full public notification in 113 cases, limited notification in 22 cases, targeted 39 cases, and no notification in 31 cases.

CNAC said there were other measures recommended in two cases, and three cases were withdrawn.
