Canadian Centre for Child Protection
The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a national charity dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Our goal is to reduce the incidence of missing and sexually exploited children while educating the Canadian public about ways to keep children safe.

Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day is February 7, 2017. Join forces with people from around the world to teach children and youth about using online technology in a safe and responsible way. On February 7, share the Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s social media posts, talk to your child about online safety and sign up for Alerts to stay up to date on the latest technological trends that pose risks to children and youth.

Don’t forget that online safety begins offline. Download the NEW Safety Rocks activity book for kids in Grades 3 and 4 to help your child build her/his personal safety competence.

New Smartphone?

If your teen is one of the many teens who received a new smartphone over the holidays, now is a good time to check in with her/him to see how s/he’s using it and to set guidelines around its use (if you haven’t done so already). Become familiar with the apps your teen is using – while these apps are great for your teen, they also pose risks that you should know about.

For more information about how you can help your teen stay safe while using her/his smartphone, visit

My First Safety Book

Are you the parent of a young child? The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has developed a NEW activity book that introduces important personal safety topics to children ages 4 – 7. Full of age-appropriate activities, My First Safety Book is a fun way for parents and children to build children’s safety competence together.

To request a copy of My First Safety Book to complete with your child, contact us.

Lost Child

Would your child know what to do if s/he was separated from you in a public place? Having a plan in place and teaching your child safety strategies ahead of time can assist in locating her/him quickly and safely. Going to a pre-arranged meeting place and staying in one spot and shouting out for you are two things your child can do to help you find her/him. For a complete list of safety strategies you can teach your child, click here.

Would you know what to do if you saw a child who was lost? A quick response from concerned citizens is crucial to a child’s safe return to family. Find out how you can help a lost child here.
