Donnaconna Penitentiary near Quebec City houses several top-ranking members of the Hells Angels, including Hells Angels kingpin Maurice "Mom" Boucher, who was accused of killing two prison guards, Diane Lavigne and Pierre Rondeau, in 1997.In October of 1998, a prison guard was convicted of smuggling cocaine and heroin from Bordeaux jail in Montreal to the Hells Angels "wing" of Donnacona penitentiary (Ottawa Citizen 11 July 2002 ).An estimated 250 Aboriginal incarcerated youths are involved in prison gangs and up to 1,000 in Aboriginal youth street gangs (Correctional Service Canada 2005).

In Edmonton, Aboriginal gangs such as the Indian Posse and Redd Alert are growing so fast that competition over resources is pushing other gangs into outlying areas across rural Alberta.

In the 12,000 person jurisdiction of Hobbema, the hub of the four Native reserves Samson, Montana, Ermineskin and Louis Bull, drug-networks are being set up by the Indian Posse and Redd Alert.

The gangs listed below are by no means an exhaustive list of the possible organizations operating in prison and on the streets in the Vancouver, the Prairies, the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa, and Montreal, but they are by far the majority, with the largest being the Manitoba Warriors, the Native Syndicate, the Indian Posse, Redd Alert, the Hells Angels, the Crips, the Bandidos, Shower Posse, White Aryan Resistance, (aka Aggravated Resistance), and the Bloods.

In all cases, these gangs produce institutional instability, an increase in transfers, and a spread of membership.

Furthermore, 80% of all young male offenders aged 25 and younger are affiliated with a gang (Correctional Service Canada 2002).

According to the Calgary Herald, 450 Aboriginal gang members serve time in prisons throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, with 113 of those on conditional release, and 58 of those at a single institution, Drumheller.Criminal Intelligence Service Canada's Annual 2005 Report states that "Incarcerated gang members and associates use assaults, intimidation, and to a much lesser extent, homicide, to discipline members/associates, to retaliate against rivals and to establish or maintain involvement in criminal activities, like drug trafficking, within correctional institutions." In 2004, Drumheller Institution inmate Todd Jefferey Irving murdered Alberta Warriors inmate Roy Eyre, allegedly in self-defence, immediately after he heard Jefferey had marked Irving for assassination.In all cases, in the Prairies, fights and drug trafficking are "stock-in-trade" for native prison gangs (Calgary Herald 26 April 2004).In addition to these Aboriginal and street-youth gangs, Hells Angels-affiliates the Devil's Henchmen, Iron Steed and Red Demons are also growing (CISA 2005).Saskatchewan reported the highest per capita Aboriginal youth gang membership in Canada, at 1.34 per 1,000 people.According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the Manitoba Warriors and the Indian Posse are the largest gangs in the city of Winnipeg, and probably account for the city's 7% ownership of the country's entire gang population.
