Annotation: This Annual Report of Ontario's Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (Canada) (April 1, 2000, to March 31, 2001) presents information and statistics on the activities and awards of the Board, which is a quasi-judicial administrative tribunal charged with providing compensation to innocent victims of crimes of violence that have occurred in the Province of Ontario.
Abstract: Applications for compensation may be made by or on behalf of victims who have been injured and for expenses incurred as a result of death caused from a criminal act as defined under the Canadian Criminal Code. Credible evidence is necessary in order for the Board to adjudicate a claim on a balance of probabilities. A sample of nine Board decisions encompasses cases that involved assault/assault causing bodily harm; denial of compensation for an assault because the applicant failed to cooperate with the police; assault on a peace officer; domestic assault; murder; sexual assault of an adult; sexual assault of a child; the sexual assault of a child who applied for compensation as an adult; and robbery. Other cases profiled are Section 25 case reviews and periodic reviews. Results of a stakeholder survey are also provided, along with a listing of Board hearing sites. Tables provide data on hearings, decisions, compensation awards, sections of the Board, processing, types of offenses, and number of calls per month. Awards can be made up to a maximum of $25,000; the average award in the 2000/2001 fiscal year was $6,100. Ontario's Compensation for Victims of Crime Act is included.
