If you’re registered on the victim notification system and the defendant in your case was sentenced, you can receive your notifications through The Victim Notification App (ViNA).

ViNA is a secure website where you can create an account and control how you receive information. By signing up for ViNA, you’ll be able to receive new notifications faster, personalise your settings, automatically send alerts to support people so they can check in with you, and keep your information secure. You can read more about this app in this ViNA brochure.
