New Publication on Restitution for Victims of Crime

Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) is pleased to announce a new publication, Restitution: Repairing Financial Harm to Victims of Crime.  This new bilingual publication on restitution explains in plain language the role of restitution in the criminal justice system, and provides easily accessible information to victims of crime about their potential entitlement.  The pamphlet also provides a general explanation of the concept of restitution, with information on the application process.  

This pamphlet was produced in collaboration with the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety, Victim Services and with the input of the New Brunswick Department of Justice and Attorney General, Specialized Prosecutions Section.  Funding for this publication was provided by the Policy Centre for Victim Issues, Justice Canada.

To order additional copies of the pamphlet, please contact PLEIS-NB at pleisnb@web.ca or 506-453-5369.  For more information about restitution for victims of crime, please contact your local Victim Services office (www.gnb.ca/publicsafety).
