For the 1990 comedy film, see Club Fed (film).

In North American English, Club Fed is a term that describes a prison whose accommodations are less severe than many other prisons. The term is a pun on the "Club Med" chain of all-inclusive resorts. The 1999 movie Office Space made a reference to this style of prison by referring to it as a, "white-collar, minimum-security resort."

In Canada, "Club Fed" was used derisively to describe the Joliette Institution For Women, the Joliette prison where serial killer Karla Homolka was held, because of the prison's supposedly luxurious conditions and lax restrictions, claims the prison has denied.[1]
