Counselling Guidelines

The Crime Victim Assistance Program Counselling Guidelines are for victim services providers. They provide information on expectations, reporting requirements, limitations and reimbursement for counselling services.

Recent Changes to Counselling Benefits

The Community Safety and Crime Prevention Branch recently added a new counselling benefit that is now available through the Crime Victim Assistance Program. This benefit provides additional counselling sessions for eligible claimants to provide support during legal proceedings.

The intention of this benefit is to provide claimants with additional support to help address the trauma and victimization that can be triggered by legal proceedings. Legal proceedings often take place years after a crime occurs, and by that time the claimant may have used up all of their regular counselling benefits.
