With Bill C-25 in force, the amount of credit given for time served is capped at a 1-to-1 ratio; credit is to be given at a ratio of up to 1.5 to 1 only where circumstances justify it; courts are to explain the circumstances that justify a higher ratio; and the pre-sentencing credit ratio is limited to a maximum ratio of 1 to 1 for individuals detained in custody prior to sentencing because of a criminal record or a violation of bail.
