In April 2019 it was announced that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) would begin the process of winding down its operations. The final step of the dissolution will be complete on December 31, 2021 with the closure of the CICB.

The CICB has worked diligently to ensure that all applications that were received by September 30, 2019 will be resolved before its dissolution. For applicants who have received an award of a monthly (periodic) payment or funds for treatment to be paid directly to their service provider, the CICB is continuing to issue monthly (periodic) payments and pay treatment invoices.

Once dissolution is complete on December 31, monthly (periodic) payments and treatment invoice payments to service providers will continue to be paid seamlessly by the Victims and Vulnerable Persons Division (VVPD) of the Ministry of the Attorney General starting January 1, 2022. As of January 1, 2022, applicants with questions about their continuing payments should contact VVPD at 1-833-704-2610.
