THE AFPAD'S MISSIONFounded "by victims' families for victims' families", the association's main mission is to accompany, to advise and to defend the interests of families touched by a homicide or a disappearance under apparently criminal circumstances.
THE POWER OF MUTUAL AIDFew words can appease the pain experienced by victims' families, but knowing that we are not alone to carry this emotional burden is always appreciated.
Small gestures can be worth thousands of words: a handshake, a pat on the shoulder, an invitation to lunch.
A MORE EQUITABLE JUSTICE FOR VICTIMSAFPAD represents several hundred QuĂ©bec families and is fighting for a "better justice to better protect victims and society". We advocate that criminals receive sentences proportional to the gravity of the crimes they committed. In addition, AFPAD fully supports initiatives aimed at preventing crime and violence.
CHARTER OF VICTIM'S RIGHTSAn important place must be given to the victims within our justice system so they may exercise an active role instead of being spectators with no right to speak up.
Consequently, victims must not only have the right to voice their opinions and concerns, but they must also be entitled to compensation for damages they suffered.
