Criminal Injury Compensation Time Period

As at today’s date, 2007, you only have two years to make an application to the CICA for compensation, so the time period for you to make your claim has now long passed.

Are there any exceptions to the two year time period to claim criminal injury compensation?

“Yes,” there are some exceptions to the two year period to make an application for criminal injury compensation.

Unfortunately, I do not think any of these exceptions will apply to your particular criminal injury.
