COVID-19 Updates: Taking steps to return to normal.
We gathered input from stakeholders to help inform the development of a new victim assistance program and to improve the current service delivery model.
Albertans have told us that the current system doesn’t always help victims of crime enough, and service delivery should be more consistent and accessible across the province.
This engagement built on suggestions received from stakeholders during phase 1 of engagement in 2019, which helped improve financial benefits delivered under the interim victim assistance program.

Results under review
Who is listening
Ministry of Justice and Solicitor General
MLAs Angela Pitt and Nathan Neudorf consulted with victim advocacy groups and victim-serving organizations to gather opinions on the current service delivery model and identify ways to better support victims of crime.
A final report and recommendations will be submitted to the minister of Justice and Solicitor General by early 2021.
Stakeholder feedback will help us develop a permanent victim assistance program and assess changes needed to the current service delivery model, which will ensure:
- victims are treated with courtesy, compassion and respect
- the right supports are available to victims when they need them
- services are consistent and accessible in all areas of the province
Stakeholders are welcome to submit questions by email: [email protected].
