Opened in 1990, on the Blood Reserve in Standoff, Kainai Community Correctional Centre is a 24 bed minimum security correctional centre for Aboriginal inmates.
- The Blood Tribe delivers community-based correctional services to members on its Reserve and to those in surrounding communities. It recognizes the particular needs of Aboriginal people in conflict with the law, and a willingness of Aboriginal leaders, organizations, and communities to play an active role in delivering community-based correctional programs to their people.
- The centre and related programs are overseen by a non-profit society with a Board of Directors. Local Aboriginal Elders provide counseling and spiritual instruction to inmates.
- The centre offers a community work program and life skills instruction which are intended to assist inmates in gradual reintegration into the community.
