VICTIM ASSISTANCE

We are equipped to provide support and assistance to victims of violent crime throughout Canada. Victims and their families can contact Victims of Violence for support and referrals, and help understanding the justice system. We conduct research on issues related to victims of crime and act as a resource centre, providing information on these issues for victims and the community.

We produce and distribute victim information guides on a variety of topics having to do with victims and the criminal justice system, including such topics as “A Guide to Providing Support and Assistance to Victims” and “A Survivor’s Guide to Homicide and Grieving.” Please browse our Victim Information Library to view our victim information guides.

We are dedicated to the protection of children through education. We offer a wide variety of written child protection materials, and a number of materials to help parents understand the importance of educating their children on personal safety. Many thousands of child protection materials are distributed annually in an effort to prevent crimes against children.
