Victim Centred Justice.  Losing a loved one through murder is a devastating experience that is difficult for the average person to understand.  It is truly a unique bond that WE, survivors of homicide, share.  This shared experience allows us to understand and support each other through the long journey of healing.  MOVA was created through this vision of victims helping victims and an overriding belief in the importance of a justice system sensitive to the rights and needs of victims.


Our organization’s mandate is to support family survivors of homicide victims, help increase public awareness about victims’ rights and work with government to enhance and expand legislation, policies and programs that serve crime victims. Whether you find yourself beginning the complex process through the criminal justice system or you want to talk about your story and find comfort in sharing with others, MOVA members are here for you when you need a shoulder to lean on.
