​​​​​​​​The bill to assist persons who are victims of criminal offences and to facilitate their recovery has been passed. Visit the Assemblée nationale​​ website to find out more about t​he new modalities. We are currently working on summarizing the changes brought about by this new legislation. ​

For application processing and file management, the usual rules apply until the bill comes into force.​​

Mandate and Mission

The Direction de l’IVAC is charged with compensating rescuers and crime victims. Benefits may vary with the circumstances involved. A number of services are offered to help victims and rescuers mitigate the consequences of a traumatic event and support them throughout their recovery; in certain cases, financial assistance may also be available.

In other words, IVAC is a compensation plan that provides victims and rescuers with benefits to help them recuperate from injuries resulting from crimes and acts of good citizenship. If such injuries render victims incapable of working, studying, or carrying out most of their usual daily and domestic activities​ they may receive compensation for any potential loss of income.

The Direction de l’IVAC falls under the jurisdiction of the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé and de la sécurité du travail (CNESST).

The Department of Justice is responsible for the analysis, development, and modification of the crime victims’ compensation plan, as well as the interpretation of the Crime Victims Compensation Act.

The Direction de l’IVAC processes benefit applications in accordance with the law.
