It is, but IIRC, you can only do 2 years at the DB and then have to be transferred to another federal institution to finish your sentence.
There apparently have been some changes to the conventional wisdom that the first two years (less a day) of a sentence of imprisonment was served at Club Ed. It's discussed In the notes to QR&O 104.04 – IMPRISONMENT FOR SHORTER TERM
(B) Service prisoners and service convicts typically require an intensive programme of retraining and rehabilitation to equip them for their return to society following completion of the term of incarceration. Civilian prisons and penitentiaries are uniquely equipped to provide such opportunities to inmates. Therefore, to facilitate their reintegration into society, service prisoners and service convicts who are to be released from the Canadian Forces will typically be transferred to a civilian prison or penitentiary as soon as practical within the first 30 days following the date of sentencing. The member will ordinarily be released from the Canadian Forces before such a transfer is effected.
