    Can I claim compensation if my family member has been killed in a violent crime?

    If you have lost a family member because of a violent crime, you may be eligible to claim compensation through the CICA. This compensation can include bereavement payments and funeral expenses, as well as compensation for the loss of parental services and loss of income if the person who has been killed has dependents.

    In certain circumstances, it is also possible for dependent family members to apply to the CICA if a relative has been injured by a crime of violence but later dies of unrelated causes.
