Know Your Rights

The Canadian Victims Bill of Rights (CVBR) outlines rights afforded to victims of crime, maintaining that these rights are to be considered during each step of the criminal justice system. The CVBR provides four principal rights to victims: Information, Protection, Participation and Restitution.

The CRCVC works with victims to ensure their rights are upheld while continuing to encourage the government to ensure victims rights are being reviewed and maintained as written in the CVBR.
