Victim Impact Statement

Victim Impact Statements apply to victims of all crimes. These statements allow victims to tell the court how they've been affected by crimes. The statements include a description of the emotional, physical and financial harm caused. Crime victim services workers provide information and guidance on how to prepare Victim Impact Statements.

If a victim dies or is incapable of providing a statement, a spouse, relative or guardian may complete it. If the victim is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian may complete the statement on the victim's behalf. Upon a finding of guilt, but before sentencing, a Crown attorney will file the statement with the clerk of the court. Copies will be given to the defence lawyer and the judge.
