Who is a victim? Co-victim?

An individual who suffers direct or threatened physical, financial or emotional harm as a result of the commission of a crime is considered a "victim."  Spouses, children, parents, siblings, grandparents or guardians may also qualify as a victim if the victim is deceased or is physically unable to exercise their privileges and rights as a victim.

Individuals who do not qualify under the definition or a "victim," may receive some notifications.  You may also submit correspondence to the parole board for their review prior to the parole consideration process to express your concerns.
