Crime Victims Assistance Centre (Sapummijiit)

The Sapummijiit Crime Victims Assistance Centre was created jointly by the KRG and the Ministère de la Justice du Québec in 2004. Sapummijiit 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 resources. Sapummijiit has offices in Kuujjuaq, Salluit, Kuujjuarapik, Inukjuak and Puvirnituq, and staff attend each sitting of the itinerant court.
