 Rescuer: eligibility requirements

​To be recognized as a rescuer under the Loi visant à favoriser le civisme, a person must have suffered injury, death or damage to property as a result of an act of good citizenship performed in Quebec.

The act of citizenship

The act of citizenship must have been:

  • performed in Quebec
  • performed on or after January 1, 1977
  • performed voluntarily

The rescuer

The rescuer must:

  • have rescued a person because he or she had reasonable cause to believe that the life or physical integrity of that person was in danger
  • have suffered an injury (psychological or physical) or material damage (damage to property)

The application must be made within the same time frame as the Loi visant à aider les personnes victimes d’infractions criminelles et à favoriser leur rétablissement (LAPVIC).

The rescuer must also comply with the applicable provisions of the LAPVIC.

Death of the rescuer

The minor child, spouse, or dependent of a deceased rescuer may be eligible for financial assistance.
