Speaking out when you have been a victim of a
crime can be very difficult. It is a challenge and the healing process
can be long and painful. This
is why there are dedicated organizations that offer support to crime victims
and accompany them through their healing process.
The Sapummijiit Crime Victims Assistance
Centre has the mandate to help the victims of crime by accompanying them
through the judicial process. Sapummijiit victims support agents, who are all
Inuit, explain rights and legal remedies and refer clients to specialized and
local resources. Sapummijiit has offices in Kuujjuaq, Salluit, Kuujjuaraapik,
Inukjuak and Puvirnituq, and staff attend each sitting of the itinerant court. Sapummijiit services
are confidential, free of charge, and available in English and Inuktitut.
Victims can request assistance even if the crime happened many years ago.
There are five agents in Nunavik. Do not hesitate to call them for help or for more information.
