Victims of crime can get a monetary benefit to acknowledge victimization, based on the injuries directly suffered from the crime.
Motor vehicle incidents are generally not eligible for the Financial Benefits Program.
Your criminal record and any action on your part that may have contributed to your injuries are also considered:
- Injury benefit – for those physically / psychologically injured as a direct result of a crime
- Witness benefit – for witnesses of a crime that resulted in the death of a loved one
- Death benefit – reimbursement of funeral costs for victims that died as a result of violent crime
