Victim Impact Statements

The victims voice in the criminal justice system; by offering them a forum where they can describe to the court and the offender how the crime has affected them physically, financially and emotionally.




If ordered by the criminal court, requires the offender to pay an amount directly to the victim to cover monetary loses or property damaged in the crime.



Publication Ban

A publication ban is a court order, which prohibits the public or media from disseminating certain details of an otherwise public judicial procedure. In Canada, publication bans are most commonly issued when the safety of the victim or witness may be hindered, or when the crime involves a child.
