The Board generally conducts and manages the business and affairs of the Crime Prevention and Victim Services Trust (the “Trust”). The Board makes bylaws for the administration of its affairs and prescribes the procedure for applications for the funding of proposals and for the evaluation of applications. The Board considers proposals for funding and approves expenditures on these proposals from the Trust; it places terms and conditions on expenditures by the Trust on proposals approved by it, including requiring the proponents of proposals to evaluate the proposals; and it establishes criteria to be applied to proposals. With the approval of the Minister, the Board may spend those monies it considers necessary for the proper conduct of the affairs of the Trust.
The purpose of the Trust is to promote and provide services intended to: reduce the incidence of crime; prevent violence against women and children; and address the root causes of criminal behaviour. Funds are used for the promotion and provision of programs and services for the victims of offences, including programs and services to promote the rights described in the Victims’ Bill of Rights. Funds are also used to promote and publish information about how crime can be prevented and how people can protect themselves from being victimized by crime, about the needs of victims of offences and about services offered for victims of offences.
