Going to court and giving evidence can bring up strong
feelings and emotions.

It is natural to feel a range of emotions at various times during the court proceedings.

For support during this difficult period you can access one of the support services listed in the additional support services section of this website.

The OPP’s Victims and Witness Assistance Service (WAS) can give you information and support throughout the process. VWAS is a free, specialist service staffed by qualified professionals who are experienced in supporting witnesses and victims of crime. For further information, see the VWAS page.
