    I asked this question in 2009, and found at least 14 units were funded by their municipality, or under FCSS.
    I have been asked by Jasper Mayor and Council to check on what is currently being done in the Province, and I would appreciate your help. This may assist others and our own Programs in applying for funding from the Municipality. The Personnel Survey does show that 20 Municipalities do fund their Victim Services Program between 2 – 80% (20% average), and 10 programs are funded between 1 – 31% (6% average), of their total budgets. It would be great to have more detailed numbers on this statistic, and I would ask that you please add a comment to the list below with:
    Program Name *Municipality(s)-with/ *Program Manager *Population(s)-with/ *Funds provided(“F” FCSS or “M” Municipality)

    Jasper Victim Services *Jasper *Paul Schmidt *4980 population *$11 500.00


    Lynne Fowler

    *Victim Services Society of Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, & District *Lynne Fowler*97,555 total area *City of Spruce Grove population 29,526 *M Funds provided $12,500, Town of Stony Plain population 15,051 Funds provided *M $15,000 and County of Parkland population 30,568 *M Funds provided $5,000.



    Strathmore Regional Victim Services does not receive any funding from the municipalities served.


    Manning Regional Victim Service Society * Manning and County of Northern Lights * Pat Proskurniak/Golda Goodzeck * population 1160 * funded by town and county $6600



    Hi Paul,
    We have received no funding from either the two counties or the Town of Blackfalds… This is something we were planning to attempt again so this review will be helpful, thanks!



    Bonnyville VSU serves the town of Bonnyville and the MD of Bonnyville (includes Kehewin First Nation), population of 15,146. We receive $3000, every second year from the MD of Bonnyville. WE are thinking of approaching FCSS and the town. This information will be very helpful….

    Rimbey and District Victim Services receives no funding from the Town or Counties that we serve.



    Red Deer City Victim Services Unit (RDCVSU) * Red Deer * Cst. Jody YOUNG * 100,807 population * $13,141.00

    Funding received from VOC Fund (max $150,000) & from City of Red Deer. RDCVSU receives an annual Municipal Grant currently at $13,141 which is used for operating costs of the program.

    Note: The City of Red Deer Funds the RCMP Program Manager Position. Estimated contribution for 2015 – $151,500.00. The city factors in cost of equipment, vehicles, member salaries etc. in determining the cost to them per member.
