On September 26th the Canadian Centre for Child Protection marked the 15th anniversary of – Canada’s tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children.

For the past 15 years, the Canadian Centre has played a unique and critical role in protecting children from online sexual exploitation and abuse by offering a national clearinghouse for triaging potentially illegal reports and providing Canadians with resources to reduce the victimization of children on the internet. has evolved over the years in response to the changing role technology has played in facilitating sexual offenses against children. Our understanding of sexual offending behaviour and the manifestation of these activities on the internet has also changed – and led to the launch of Project Arachnid earlier this year and the recent release of our International Survivors’ Survey results.

While we have made significant progress over the years, there is still much to be done. We must strengthen our commitment to fight the sexual exploitation and abuse of children – they deserve nothing less.

Keeping kids safe

Child safety is a top priority for parents. Two of the best strategies parents can use to keep their children safe are:

  1. Supervision
    Supervision is critical to increasing a child’s personal safety. Children require different levels of supervision depending on their age, development, individual characteristics and the environment they are in. Age-appropriate recommendations for supervision can be found here.
  2. The Buddy System
    The Buddy System is the single most effective way to reduce the risk of child abduction. For younger children, a buddy is a parent or older sibling; for older kids, a buddy can be a friend. It’s never too early to start teaching children about the Buddy System, and children are never too old to use it – continue to reinforce the importance of using the buddy system throughout your child’s lifetime.
