Get Involved: Online Training

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s online training helps individuals working with children understand their role in helping to prevent child sexual abuse and exploitation.

Our online training increases awareness among adults who work with children — adults who are in important, protective positions — to recognize and respond to signs of child sexual abuse, to help reduce the risk of it occurring, and to help build personal safety confidence in children.

I felt that some of my actions were probably speaking louder than words could have, and it was something that could have been picked up on if they would have had the realization of what to look for.

— John (child sexual abuse survivor)
