Employees, administrators, volunteers, coaches in clubs, skating schools and sections have the responsibility, as stated in provincial child welfare laws, to identify and report suspected child abuse and neglect.
You do not need to be sure that a child is or may be in need of protection to make a report. “Reasonable grounds” are what an average person, given his or her training, background and experience, exercising normal and honest judgement, would suspect.
If you suspect a child is being abused, neglected, or if you are a child who is being maltreated, contact your local Child Protection Agencies. If the child is in immediate danger, dial 911 or call your local police emergency number. The contact information for local child protection agencies and the police are listed below by province.
While we are doing our best to make sure that the contact information for all agencies is up to date, at times you may find that some numbers have changed. If the number is no longer in service or incorrect, please contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you in locating the correct contact information.
