Disabled people encounter higher than average levels of forced institutionalization. Disability based segregation has been and still is a common practice, to the point of widespread public acceptance, that disregards basic human rights and contributes to the widespread imprisonment of disabled people in places such as provincial institutions, nursing homes, psychiatric facilities and locked hospital wards, as well as in high numbers in provincial and federal prisons. Disability discrimination is also endemic in the immigration system and how people are treated in detention centres.
