Social Sciences - Government / Politics / prison administration
French term or phrase: incl. 1 B.F.
The text describes a prison for women in Quebec. There is a table listing the various buildings, population type, number of cells/beds, etc. In the "total no. of cells" column, some entries indicate the number of cells followed by "incl. 1 B.F."

What does B.F. stand for? Thx.

This seems logical in the context, but it's impossible to be sure. I see the English acronym BF (short for breastfeeding) is used in French sometimes as I just found this in a PDF and then promptly lost all trace of the link (sorry):
Allaitement maternel (BF)

You might need B.F. if it's American English.

neutral  writeaway: it's been confirmed it's a French acronym /it's a Canadian text, not a Belgian one. I fear this answer is way off

  -> It's being used in a French text, writeaway, but then that text I gave as a ref above is in French too // It's quite likely to be wrong, hence the low confidence level :)
