You do not need to report the crime to the police to apply.
You are eligible for the Victims of Crime Emergency Fund if:
- You, your child or a dependent was a victim of a crime.
- The crime happened in the Yukon in the last 60 days.
- You have an emergency or immediate expense resulting from the crime.
- You have an expense that affects your safety.
- You have no other resources to cover that expense (such as social assistance, your First Nation, insurance or a community group).
Victim Services will consider whether other types of situations are eligible.
You will first need to contact Victim Services in person or by phone. No appointment is necessary to visit Victim Services in person. Victim Services offices are located at:
301 Jarvis Street, 2nd floor
Toll free: 1-800-661-0408 ext. 8500
- Dawson City
813B 3rd Avenue
- Watson Lake
820 Adela Trail
You can also email Victim Services at email@example.com
You will then need to fill out the Victims of Emergency Fund application form with a victim services worker. A decision will be made as soon as possible.
If your application is approved:
- You and the victim services worker will work with vendors (such as a dentist, locksmith, or carpenter) for services
- Victim Services will pay the vendor directly
- You cannot get reimbursed for expenses you already paid.
If your application is denied:
- You can ask for a review of the decision by contacting the supervisor of Victim Services.
