The injured victim of a crime can receive monetary compensation, based on the direct injuries caused by the crime.
You may be eligible for financial benefits if:
The Criminal Injuries Review Board can conduct independent reviews of financial benefits decisions. This process can take about four months and all decisions will be presented in writing.
A Supplemental Financial Benefit is also given for victims who are quadriplegic or have a brain injury that’s left them unable to care for themselves and totally dependent on someone else for their care. The benefit amounts are set in the regulation.
Alberta’s Victims of Crime Act created the Victims of Crime Fund and introduced the Financial Benefits Program in 1997. The fund is solely supported by the surcharges on provincial fines and surcharges imposed by the courts under the Criminal Code of Canada. This fund also supports other victim programs and services.
