Crown Witness Coordinator Program Photo Essay

The federal government has a unique role in the North. Unlike in the provinces where Criminal Code offences are prosecuted by the Attorney General of the province, Criminal Code offences in the territories are prosecuted by the Attorney General of Canada through the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC). As such, the federal government has responsibility for Crown-based support to victims through the Crown Witness Coordinator Program.

Crown Witness Coordinators work closely with Crown prosecutors, victims, witnesses, and the community to provide a critical link between the criminal justice system and victims of crime. This small but essential support team for witnesses and victims of crime provide services to victims and witnesses in 63 communities throughout the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Join us while we explore how services to victims are delivered by Crown Witness Coordinators in Canada's North.
