CAVACs offer front-line services to all victims of crime and their immediate family and to witnesses to a crime. The centres provide assistance regardless of whether the perpetrator of the crime has been identified, apprehended, prosecuted or convicted.

CAVACs work closely with the justice community, the health and social services network and community organizations.

CAVACs treat victims with respect for their needs and proceed at a pace which is comfortable for the victims. They believe in the ability of victims to manage their lives and to make the decisions that affect them.
