Where can federal inmates apply for legal aid?

A federal inmate is a person who is serving their sentence at a correctional facility run by the Government of Canada (specifically the Correctional Service of Canada). Federal inmates are different from provincial inmates, who serve their sentence at a correctional facility run by the Government of Ontario.
