Victim Quick Response Program
The Victim Quick Response Program provides timely financial assistance to victims of violent crime when financing cannot be obtained through other sources. It is designed to support victims in the immediate aftermath of a violent crime, to lessen the impact of the event, and to increase a victim’s level of safety. It is intended to help contribute to the costs of counselling, funeral and emergency expenses including crime scene cleanup. This support is available to victims of homicide, attempted murder, serious physical assault, sexual assault, domestic violence, and hate crimes.
