Criminal Injuries Compensation Advocacy

Date:
May 03, 2019 (6 webinars at 20 minutes each )

Recorded on May 3, 2019 - This collection of six short webinars is part of a collection of materials that includes case studies and an advocacy handbook and was produced by Community Law School. These webinars provide information on Ontario's Compensation for Victims of Crime Act which is implemented and administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB). The materials cover the scope of the Act, factors to consider before applying, the application process and what to expect at a Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) hearing. Information is also provided for community advocates within the Criminal Injuries Compensation system.

Disclaimer

The Province of Ontario announced in its recent budget that the Criminal Injures Compensation Board will be dissolved. It is expected to take place 18 to 24 months from now. In the meantime, the information in these webinars (and supporting materials) is relevant for ongoing applications. Learners are well advised to check the CICB website for any updates as they are announced.

There are two case studies used to illustrate the concepts. "Gurpreet's Journey" focuses on a sexual assault in an employment setting while "Rumi's Journey" involves a domestic violence case.

Learners are encouraged to read the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board Advocacy Handbook and the case studies prior to listening to the webinars and reviewing the webinar slides.
