CICB Forms Online; Translation Feature Added

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board has now posted its application forms, together with guides for completing them, on its website at: http://www.cicb.gov.on.ca/en/faq.htm. This is a significant development as these forms were previously only available by mail after an initial telephone intake interview with a CICB representative.

The CICB website has also added a Google Translate feature (at the top of the website page) allows users to translate the website’s content into any of 51 languages.

Advocates working with clients who may have a Criminal Injuries Compensation claim should be aware of the availability of the claim forms online---this can be a wonderful resource when contemplating whether to file a claim---as well as the increased accessibility afforded by the Google Translate feature.
