The BC Government, Government of Canada and City of Vancouver have announced that $50,000 compensation will be available to each of the 98 surviving children of women who went missing from the Vancouver Downtown Eastside between 1997 and 2002. Given the Public Guardian and Trustee's (PGT) expertise in financial management options, the PGT is assisting the MWCI Compensation Fund in coordinating the payment of funds to eligible recipients as well as providing information and advice on financial management. The PGT is not involved in establishing eligibility.
The PGT has established a Project Team to assist with this process and a more detailed FAQ document is available here.
Recipients or persons assisting recipients are invited to contact the PGT at if they have any questions regarding the process.
