Testifying in Court as a Victim or Witness of Crime

There are six Victim/Witness Programs that provide court orientation and support to children and other vulnerable witnesses who are required to testify in court in Saskatchewan. These programs maintain the goal is to help reduce the fear, anxiety and further trauma that may occur through testifying. Topics that may be covered in the programs include:

  • Liaison and advocacy with the court and Crown Prosecutor to help ensure your needs in the courtroom are known. This includes exploring the use of testimonial aids that may be available in some cases, especially for child witnesses;
  • Information about the status of your case, legal terms, what it is like to be a witness and how the process works. This will give you a better understanding of the criminal justice system. Children are taught about the process in a friendly atmosphere and in a manner appropriate to their age;
  • Court tour and orientation to familiarize you with the courtroom and the roles of court personnel;
  • Court accompaniment to provide support and assistance when you are planning for and attending court;
  • Referrals to community and government service agencies to meet related needs, such as outreach or counseling.

The Victim/Witness Coordinator cannot discuss the details of the crime with you, but can assist you in making contact with the Crown Prosecutor. The Crown Prosecutor may review these details with you prior to court.
