Victim/Witness Assistance

If you are a victim or witness of a crime, you may need to go to court. This can be a difficult experience and you may have questions about the criminal court process and what will be expected of you.

The Victim/Witness Assistance Program is a court-based program that provides information, help and support to victims and witnesses of crime so they can understand and participate in the criminal court process. A victim/witness service worker will talk with you and assist you based on your specific case and needs.

The Victim/Witness Assistance Program can:

  • provide you with information about your case, victims’ rights and the criminal court process
  • provide you with information about courtroom procedures and your role in court
  • help you understand what to expect at each court date and help prepare you for your appearance in court
  • provide you with key court updates
