The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization rooted in the protection and recovery of today’s most innocent and vulnerable – our children. The CACAC was founded in response to a community crisis. An epidemic of youth suicides hit hard in Central Alberta, sparking overdue conversations and the need for a solution. A community coalition was formed with a goal to provide accessible mental health resources for adolescents, but the vision quickly expanded thanks to Sheldon Kennedy. The idea of creating a Child Advocacy Centre not just for Red Deer, but all of Central Alberta soon came to fruition. Conversations, connections and courageous commitment lead to what we have today, the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. A Centre aimed to provide wrap-around support to all children and families who need us. It takes courage for a child to come forward and share that someone has hurt them - we are hear to listen without judgment, provide a safe and comfortable space for them to share their story, to provide guidance and support - and to ultimately give them back the chance of a healthy future.

The assessment and preparation processes are therapeutic in nature, and informed by current theory and clinical practice regarding offender treatment and victim trauma recovery.

L.I.N.C. is an organization that works with all people impacted by the criminal justice system. Public safety is the reason why we do what we do. L.I.N.C. believes in and is committed to the following principles: 1. that every person within society has a fundamental right to be safe and secure, 2. that everyone is part of the reintegration process where all people have an inherent value and dignity, 3. that the positive contribution of every person can have a meaningful impact on the spirit of justice, and on the sense of well being, within the community, 4. that hope for the future lies in the potential of every individual to change, and in the willingness of others to support and encourage that change. At the core of the L.I.N.C. philosophy is a belief in restorative justice. The worthlessness and isolation that many offenders feel is often clouded by their denial of guilt, which is expressed by anger, and a sense of victimization. In order for offenders to change their behaviour, they need to be accountable for what they have done to their victims, their families and the community. Supporting victims of crime has become an integral part of the work that L.I.N.C. does. This has evolved over the years to where we now provide direct service to victims through: our outreach worker for survivors of serious crime, funding and organizing victim centered community events, victim peer support groups, assisting victims to attend conferences and workshops and through funding provided by our agricultural social enterprise Emma’s Acres.

The Elizabeth Fry Society of Manitoba Inc. (EFSM) provides advocacy, access to resources and support to women who are in conflict with the provincial and federal justice systems. Some of the issues our clients struggle to overcome are addiction, poverty, mental health issues, marginalization, racism, long-term effects of residential schools and other forms of discrimination. The majority of women who contact us for help are also victims of abuse and other types of crime and have been systemically involved (child welfare agencies, youth criminal justice and other social services) since childhood. Because these women have also been charged with an offence, accessing victim resources is very challenging and often, unavailable. Some of the programs and resources we offer include: - Bail Verification & Supervision Program (supervision and support for women charged with offences) - Women for Change Program (anger management) - STOPlifting Program (addresses and explores why women shoplift or commit fraud) - Referrals to a wide range of community organizations, services and resources (health treatment, replace lost identification, addictions treatment, shelters, etc) - Transitional Housing (bridging the gap between homelessness and independent living) - Clothing Depot (providing clothing packages to women who are incarcerated or have recently been released from custody as well as provide hygiene items)

The areas where the Section assists most often includes: offering emotional support; providing police case information; providing information about the justice system; providing information about the progress of cases through the courts; providing information on the Victim Bill of Rights and Victim Impact Statements; notifying victims of the police release of accused persons when non-communication orders apply; referring victims and their families to appropriate community resources for follow-up; educating the public and the Winnipeg Police about victimization and the impact of crimes as well as providing information regarding the role of the Victim Services Section. The Section has approximately 25 volunteer caseworkers. The hours of operation are from Monday – Thursday from 08:30 to 21:00 and Friday from 08:30 to 16:00. While referrals are obtained on a daily basis internally from the Winnipeg Police Service, we also accept referrals from citizens, community agencies and police officers.

At the Child Witness Centre, we provide support and walk with children, youth and their families who are victims or witnesses of crime through the court process. We provide them with information about their case and the judicial system, accompany them to court, and support them throughout the process. We have found that with our support, children and youth are less anxious and fearful. They feel empowered and more able to use their voice and tell their story. While we can’t control the outcome in the courtroom, we can influence a child’s emotional well-being by walking the journey with them, and providing the best support possible to child victims and witnesses. This ultimately gives them a better chance at being able to move on and live normal and healthy lives as adults. More than 500 children and youth are assisted each year in Waterloo Region, Guelph and Wellington County.

To do this it: provides a "victim lens" on correctional policy development to assist victims in exercising their rights to information, participation and protection; develops information products, as resources permit, for dissemination to victims and the general public aimed at increasing awareness so victims can better understand and navigate federal corrections and conditional release; complements the work of the Policy Centre for Victim Issues through PS Portfolio coordination and engagement with victims, their advocates, and other stakeholders in order to ensure the NOV's services and supports are informed by multi-sectoral coordination; and considers the unique needs of victims in vulnerable communities or sub-populations, including Indigenous peoples when it undertakes the work outlined above. Information products for victims about the federal corrections and conditional release system can be obtain at publicsafety.gc.ca/nov. Hardcopies can be obtained at no cost by emailing (nationalofficeforvictims@ps-sp.gc.ca or bureaunationalpourlesvictimes@ps-sp.gc.ca).

SafePet Ontario removes a significant barrier for those fleeing abuse by caring for their pet(s) until the survivor is stabilized and safe. For survivors who are unable to find a trusted family member, friend or co-worker to care for their pet(s), SafePet Ontario can save lives. SafePet Ontario coordinates foster care for pets of individuals fleeing domestic violence. We offer long- or short-term fostering options for the duration of a survivor’s transition to safety.

PCVI also develops and disseminates information about effective approaches both within Canada and internationally to respond to the needs of victims of crime. They have a close working relationship with the provinces and territories that are tasked with the responsibility for victim service delivery and the provision of criminal injuries compensation to victims of violent crime, where such programs exist. PCVI also administers the Victims Fund. Some of the money from the fund provides financial assistance for victims to attend National Parole Board hearings of the offender who harmed them.
