Victims And Survivors Of Crime Week Declared In Saskatchewan

Released on May 27, 2019

May 26 to June 1 has been declared Victims and Survivors of Crime Week in Saskatchewan, coinciding with the national week of the same name.

The theme this year is “The Power of Collaboration”.

This theme reflects the importance of enhanced co-ordination, partnerships, and multi-disciplinary responses to support survivors and victims within the criminal justice system and victim services field.

“The needs of survivors and victims must be at the forefront of what we do,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said.  “By working together, we can ensure that survivors and victims get the services and emotional support they need after a crime or tragedy and throughout the criminal justice process.”

The Ministry of Justice supports programs and services throughout Saskatchewan to help victims of crime.  This includes $4.6 million in funding to police-based victim services across the province.

“This week is also a time to thank victim services staff and volunteer victim support workers who reach out with compassion when others are in crisis,” Morgan said.

There are more than 200 volunteer victim support workers in Saskatchewan.

On Monday, May 13, Morgan hosted a luncheon honouring long-term volunteers, community board members and staff who have completed 10, 15 or 20 years of service.

For information about National Victims and Survivors of Crime Week, services available for victims or volunteer opportunities, please contact your local Victim Services program.  You can also call the Victims Services Branch at 306-787-3500 or visit the website at www.saskatchewan.ca/victimsservices.
