Supporting victims and survivors of crime

The goal of Victims and Survivors of Crime Week May 15-21, 2022 is to raise awareness about the issues facing victims and survivors and about the services, assistance and laws in place to help victims, survivors, and their families. Strathcona County also acknowledges the dedicated work of Victim Services staff, volunteers and service providers who assist our citizens during their time of need. Victims and Survivors of Crime Week is an initiative of the Justice Canada Policy Centre for Victims Issues.

Strathcona County Victim Services celebrated 30 years of service in our community!

In April 2021, we recognized the contributions of the County's Victim Services volunteers over the past three decades.

Special mention goes out to long-serving volunteer Bill Hunka (pictured above with former RCMP Supt. Dave Kalist). Thanks for everything you do, Bill!

Growing up in a farming community, Bill saw how support from friends and neighbours made all the difference. The retired school principal says seeing firsthand the difference a victim advocate can make in someone’s life is what has kept him volunteering with Victim Services for over a decade now.

Being called to support someone who has suffered a traumatic event, such as the sudden death of a loved one or domestic violence incident, or even accompanying a witness through the court process—it’s all part of a victim advocate’s crisis response work, in partnership with the RCMP and Strathcona County Enforcement Services.

With gratitude, we recognize the service of our victim advocates. Thank you for your kindness, dedication and commitment to supporting people when they need it most. You make a difference in our community
