FAQs – Indigenous Youth Victim Services


You do not have to report your issue to the police to access this program. If you have been a victim of a crime and do not feel comfortable reporting it to the police, you can still access the Indigenous Youth Victim Services Program.

The Indigenous Youth Victim Support Worker is available to attend court as a support person. There may be occasions due to workload issues that the worker may not be able to attend on your specific court day, but every effort will be made to support the youth in person in the courtroom.
