Helping victims heal in 2016

As we begin 2016, CRCVC is grateful for the generous support of our donors and partners which allow us to continue to serve persons harmed by crime and violence across Canada. We will focus on our EDUCATION efforts, RESEARCH work and SUPPORT services this coming year. Serving more than 1,000 callers in 2015, we provided information resources, referrals and advocacy to survivors of violence. Staff also developed information resources and participated in various conferences and community events. We also hosted a workshop for professionals working with persons who’ve suffered trauma.

We look forward to publishing findings from our research project, “Investigating the Long-Term Impact of Bereavement Due to Terrorism: Factors That Contribute to Trauma, Grief, Growth and Resilience” in collaboration with VOICES of September 11th and the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress at the Uniformed Services University. The study is evaluating the immediate and ongoing needs of family members who lost loved ones on 9/11, or in the bombing of Air India Flight 182 in June 1985. By understanding the collective experiences of victims’ families, we will better serve and assist families impacted by other traumatic events. The study closes on Sunday, January 17, 2016. If you are a 9/11 or Air India Family member and have not yet participated, we encourage you to do so. The anonymous questionnaire is accessible at

Introducing the Canadian Centre for Information on Missing Adults 

The Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime is working in partnership with Ontario’s Missing Adults to develop a national information website for families coping with a missing adult. The website will serve as a clearinghouse for information, research and guide materials useful to families and professionals.


We are in the research and development stage currently, and are seeking information about what supports are available across Canada.  We have created a brief SURVEY for family members and for service providers.  Please tell us about helpfulprograms and services in your area; useful publications (for families or in working with families); service gaps that you may have identified or any issues you feel are important.

Survey for service providers

Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete our survey.  Your input is invaluable in developing this much needed resource for families.

This project is funded by the Department of Justice Victims Fund.

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