Criminal Injuries Compensation Board to Benefit from Shared Resources and Expertise

Ministry of the Attorney General

Ontario's Criminal Injuries Compensation Board is joining Social Justice Tribunals Ontario, a cluster of adjudicative tribunals that resolves disputes related to social justice.

As part of the social justice cluster, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board will be able to draw on more resources, such as in-house legal staff, and training opportunities, to enhance its adjudicative capacity.

As with all clustered tribunals, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board will maintain its decision-making independence.

On April 1st, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board will become the eighth tribunal of Social Justice Tribunals Ontario. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board is an arms-length administrative tribunal governed by the Compensation for Victims of Crime Act. Its role is to assess financial compensation for eligible victims or the family members of deceased victims of violent crimes committed in Ontario.
