The CSJR is a member of the Association québécoise Plaidoyer-Victimes (AQPV) and works in partnership with various organizations which support victims.
Whether you are the direct victim of a crime, a close relative to someone who has been a direct victim (secondary victim), or part of an offender’s family, it is important not to stay alone. Associations and groups exist to accompany and support you.
If you need advice and support the CSJR will be pleased to offer personalized suggestions.
Here are two references which could orient you toward therapeutic and juridical services:
- The CAVACS – Crime Victims Assistance Centres: www.cavac.qc.ca
- The CALACS – Centres d’aide et de lutte contre les agressions à caractère sexuel: www.rqcalacs.qc.ca
In certain cases, you could also benefit from a compensation. For more information, please check Indemnisation des victimes d’actes criminels: www.ivac.qc.ca.
For its part, the Service Center for Restorative Justice offers you, once the shock has subsided and a certain transformation has begun, to help you continue on this path by participating to encounters with offenders, other victims and members of the community. For more information on the victim-offender encounters, click here.
Please take care to have all the you need during this difficult period.
