4. Get a decision
Question & AnswerI’m a crime victim. Can I get money for expenses related to the crime?
The Victim Quick Response Program+ (VQRP+) will send you and the service provider a letter with their decision within:
- 3 business days for funeral and emergency expenses
- 5 business days for counselling or traditional Indigenous healing expenses
- 10 business days for applications from those who were seriously injured by a violent crime or by the immediate family member of a homicide victim
If you disagree with a decision, you might be able to submit another application or apply for a judicial review. When you apply for a judicial review, you're asking a judge to review a decision because of a big legal or factual mistake in the decision.
It's a good idea to speak with a lawyer if you want a judicial review. Contact your caseworker at your local VQRP+ service provider to discuss reapplying.
