Minister of Justice Announces New Federal Ombudsman for Victims of Crime
The process of filling the the position of Federal Ombudsman for Victims of Crime was undertaken in accordance with the Government’s new, merit-based approach to Governor in Council appointments.
In addition to its direct work with victims, the Office of the Federal Ombudsman for Victims of Crime also works to ensure that policy makers and other criminal justice personnel are aware of victims' needs and concerns and to identify important issues and trends that may negatively impact victims.
Victims can contact the Office to learn more about their rights under federal law and the services available to them, or to make a complaint about any federal agency or federal legislation dealing with victims of crime.
