Legal Notices and Documents

The National Inquiry has extended the deadline for receiving Standing Applications and applications for funding related to standing to Monday, May 1, 2017 at 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time.


For family members and survivors of violence:  If you want to share your experiences with, or testify before, the National Inquiry, you do NOT require standing.  You will be a “witness”.  Therefore you do not need to fill out the Application for Standing which follows.  Furthermore, you will not be required to apply for funding under the standing process.  Your reasonable expenses for attending a fact-gathering hearing (travel, accommodation, meals, child care) will be covered under a separate process.  The funding form that follows is ONLY for those seeking standing, not for those who will be sharing their experiences with the National Inquiry.
