Victims’ Bill of Rights Registration

Manitoba Justice recognizes the need to offer information, assistance and support to victims of the most serious crimes.

Victim services workers:

  • provide information about the justice system and community resources
  • advise victims of their options, rights and responsibilities

Why should I register?

You must register with Manitoba Justice if you want to exercise your rights under The Victims’ Bill of Rights (VBR). The VBR is a law that gives rights to victims of the most serious crimes.

You can access these rights as you deal with police, prosecutors, the courts and corrections agencies. However, you must register with Manitoba Justice through a victim services worker once criminal charges have been laid.

How do I register?

You may register by telephone or by filling out the registration phone linked at the bottom of this page. In Winnipeg, please mail or fax your completed registration form to a victim services worker at:
