Reading the report, I am a bit confused

In 2016, 1596 unstable approaches were captured, which equates to 0.86% of all approaches conducted by WestJet. Of those, 1452 (approximately 91%) continued to a landing and 144 (approximately 9%) resulted in a go-around. The majority of WestJet’s 1596 unstable approaches in 2016 were characterized by rate-of-descent exceedances, and during 609 of them the aircraft exceeded 1300 fpm for more than 2 seconds during descent between 1000 feet AGL and 500 feet AGL.
In many of the OM I have read, being "unstable" requires a mandatory go around?
