Criminal Injuries Compensation


Ontario Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) exists to assess and award financial compensation for innocent victims of violent crimes, including sexual crimes, committed in Ontario.

In the employment law context, this can be an interesting avenue for obtaining financial compensation for employees who are injured or who lose their jobs as a result of an experience that constitutes a crime under Canadian law, for instance assault or sexual assault.

How can a victim of a violent crime apply for compensation?

After filing a CICB’s application form, a CICB hearing can take place in one of three ways:

  • In writing
  • In person before a Panel Member
  • By way of teleconference.

If the Board determines that an applicant’s claim can be assessed based on written information provided for the file alone, the applicant may not need to attend a hearing. If an oral hearing is needed, the Board will require the applicant to be present and to answer questions about the incident, injuries and associated costs.
