 Lump sum for permanent sequelae or temporary impairment

Financial assistance may be paid in the form of a lump sum for permanent sequelae or temporary physical or psychological impairments.

The lump sum is established after a health assessment confirms that there is no longer any possibility of a significant improvement for the impairment(s).

To learn more about this financial assistance, you can watch the video clip produced by the Ministère de la Justice “Lump sum in the event of sequelae” (French only).

Assessment criteria

The health assessment in support of a lump sum application must be completed by a health professional who is a member of one of the following professional orders.

The permanent impairment percentage or the category of severity of a temporary impairment is determined by IVAC upon receipt of the health assessment. The health assessment must demonstrate that there is no possibility of a significant improvement.

Calculation of the lump sum

For permanent sequelae

The amount is determined by multiplying the permanent sequelae percentage by an amount set by regulation.

Terms of payment

The full amount of the lump sum can be paid in one or more instalments.

It can be divided into 12 or 24 instalments.


Interest is calculated and added to each payment instalment if the victim chooses to receive their compensation in 12 or 24 instalments.
