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

In North America, Club Fed is a derisive term for a prison whose accommodations are less severe than many other prisons. Club Fed 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, the Joliette Institution For Women was nicknamed "Club Fed" because of the prison's supposedly luxurious conditions and lax restrictions, claims the prison has denied.[1]
