There is a growing recognition that victims of crimes have rights within, and expectations of, the criminal justice system, and that they have both an entitlement to participate in the punishment of their assailant and entitlement to financial compensation in certain circumstances. Compensation of Crime Victims discusses the important rights of victims of crime as delineated in federal and provincial legislation. Topics covered include: enforceability of rights; specific rights such as courtesy, information, privacy and redress for harm suffered, and the right to be heard; entitlement to financial compensation; offences permitting compensation; and administration and funding of victims services.Competition and Foreign Investment
