National Victims of Crime Awareness Week (NVCAW)

The seventh annual National Victims of Crime Awareness Week (NVCAW). A federal symposium is being planned to take place in Ottawa on Monday, April 23, 2012 to officially launch the Week. NVCAW is an opportunity to raise awareness about victim issues and about the programs, services and laws in place to help victims of crime and their families. The theme for NVCAW 2012 is: “Moving Forward“. As in the past, limited financial assistance is available to organizations that would like to host an NVCAW 2012 event. The deadline for applications to receive funding to host an event for NVCAW 2012 is November 7, 2011 – Visit http://www.victimsweek.gc.ca/fund-fond/index.html.
