Immigration detainee dies in custody at Toronto East Detention Centre

The Canada Border Services Agency is investigating the circumstances of the death of an immigration detainee at the Toronto East Detention Centre.

In a statement Tuesday, the CBSA confirmed the detainee died on Monday, but gave no other details including the identity of the detainee or the country of origin.

Brent Ross, a spokesperson for the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, would not comment on the circumstances.

“We can’t really discuss any of the details because there are ongoing investigations,” he said. He did say police, the CBSA, the ministry and the coroner’s office are all investigating.
