Navigating Justice: The Crime Victims Assistance Program in BC

In British Columbia, navigating the complexities of the justice system can be daunting, especially for those who have experienced the trauma of being a victim of crime. The CVAP, Crime Victims Assistance Program, in BC, exists as a province wide attempt to provide material guidance, support and financial assistance to those in need.

Established with the intention of providing comprehensive assistance to victims of crime, CVAP operates under the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Its primary objective is to alleviate the financial, emotional and social burdens faced by victims and their families while offering resources to aid in their recovery journey.

One of the key aspects of CVAP is to provide financial assistance. Victims of crime may be eligible for compensation to cover expenses such as: counseling services, medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of income.
