All Mission Institution inmate visits are cancelled until further notice after the medium security institution was locked down Monday afternoon.

Information about contraband in the Stave Lake Road prison prompted the 4 p.m. closure.

Staff are currently searching the facility to "ensure the safety of staff and inmates," read a Correctional Service Canada press release.

The institution currently houses 263 inmates.
