Federal income support for parents of murdered or missing children now available

Going through the tragedy of the loss of a child who is murdered or missing can leave you grief stricken and unable to work. The Federal Income Support for Parents of Murdered or Missing Children (PMMC) grant is available to assist with your financial needs while you are coping with this tragedy.  It is available to eligible parents who have lost income from taking time away from work to cope with the death or disappearance of their child as a result of a probable Criminal Code offence.  Please visit the Service Canada website for eligibility information and to apply.

The Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime offers support, research and education to survivors and stakeholders.
