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 is February 6, 2018

This Safer Internet Day, our Cybertip.ca analysts are answering two common questions we get from Canadian parents – What are the BIGGEST risks tweens/teens face online? and What can parents do to help their kids stay safe online? Watch the videos at saferinternetday.ca.

On February 6, help us reach as many parents as possible by sharing the Canadian Centre’s posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And don’t forget to check out ProtectKidsOnline.ca, talk to your kids about online safety and sign up for Cybertip.ca Alerts to help ensure safer online experiences for your kids!

Working with Law Enforcement to Help Keep Kids Safe

The Canadian Centre works collaboratively with policing agencies across Canada to raise awareness and get important educational materials into the hands of Canadians. This January, the Canadian Centre formalized protocols with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ottawa Police Service.

As part of our protocol with the OPP, they will be distributing The Canadian Centre’s My First Safety Book to families across Ontario. Not in Ontario? Download your copy of My First Safety Book.
