Helping Victims of Crime - Module
Crime impacts everyone in many different ways. The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) provides victims with the opportunity to access information about the offender who harmed them. As well, CSC victim services encourage victims to provide a victim statement about the impact of the crime. This gives victims an opportunity to contribute to the correctional process and have their voices heard.
