Millhaven Lifers' Liaison Group

The Millhaven Lifers Liaison Group (MLLG) is made up of volunteers from the Ottawa community who have established a connection with people serving life sentences at Millhaven maximum security institution in Bath Ontario.

Our objective is to serve as a bridge between the community and the prisoners, with a view to supporting their eventual release and re-integration.

The MLLG’s mission is to maintain a positive, ongoing relationship with the Millhaven Lifers Group (MLG) in order to support successful releases through joint projects.
