Canadian Postwar Guards

During the winter of 1945/46 did any Canadian units serve as guards for the German POWs that were still being held? I ask because I am reading an account by a SS POW who was treated brutally by the British guards in Belgium during the winter of 1945/46. I can understand that there wasn't any love lose for the members of the SS, but to keep them in an unheated hole in the ground during the winter seems a little extreme.
