The Youth Protection Act (YPA) sets out that children and youth aged 0 to 18 need protection when they experience one of the following six situations:

  • Abandonment
  • Negligence
  • Psychological mistreatment
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • When they have serious behavioural problems

The child’s safety or development may also be considered compromised if the child runs away or is of school age and does not attend school or is absent from school for some reason.

How and when can I submit a report?

Call any time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
