In Northern 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 1988, Manuel Noriega and his partners, former executives of the BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International) share a cell there.

In Canada, the Joliette Institution For Women, the Joliette prison was nicknamed "Club Fed", because of the prison's supposedly luxurious conditions and lax restrictions, claims the prison has denied.[1]
