The federal victim surcharge in the Northwest Territories / Lisa Ha.: J4-75/2014E-PDF

"A victim surcharge is an additional penalty automatically imposed on offenders at the time of sentencing unless the accused seeks waiver due to undue hardship. There is a federal and in most jurisdictions, a provincial/territorial surcharge that is collected and retained by the provincial and territorial governments, and used to help fund programs, services and assistance to victims of crime within the provinces and territories"--Exec.
