Sandra Martins-Toner is the Founder and Executive Director of Families Against Crime & Trauma, (F.A.C.T.), an organization born as a result of the random and senseless murder of her sixteen year old son. Sandra now works tirelessly to help others that have lost a loved one to a violent crime. Her articles appear regularly in magazines and online publications across Canada.

Background Information

As a mother of a murdered child, I have seen first hand the devastation caused by these senseless acts of violence. I began to notice quickly that there were no resources for the families left behind in the aftermath of the crime.

I wanted to be able to reach out to others, and in doing so I founded an organization called Families Against Crime & Trauma, (F.A.C.T.). I now stand alongside hundred of families looking to see changes made to the Criminal Justice System, and the treatement of victims/families.

By sharing my sons life and tragic death, I have found a way to cope with the pain that ensued.


Birth Place
Vancouver,  Canada

My articles are featured in Crime Watch Canada, The Asian Outlook, and online media, Prime Time Crime. My organization won the MADD award in 2007 for the help we have provided to victims/families across the lower mainland.

Additional Information

I have recently been featured in the Surrey Now Newspaper. The Article was called "Never Just One Victim."
