New Canadian Benefit for Parents of Young Victims of Crime

The Government of Canada is replacing the Parents of Murdered or Missing Children grant with the Canadian Benefit for Parents of Young Victims of Crime. The new benefit provides income support to eligible applicants who have suffered a loss of income because they took time away from work to cope with the death or disappearance of a child or children, as a result of a probable Criminal Code offence.
