Reporting a case to Youth Protection Services

Parents are responsible for their children’s protection, and so is every member of the community. As a professional, a police officer, a neighbor or a family member, you have an important role to play when it comes to identifying a child experiencing serious problems

Children who have been abandoned or neglected, who are victims of psychological, physical or sexual abuse, and children who are experiencing serious behavioural issues must be reported to the authorities

Reporting a child or info-consultation

Reporting is an essential component of Youth Protection Services, and it’s not essential to be absolutely sure of the situation to report a child. When circumstances lead you to believe that there are reasonable grounds to think a child’s safety or development is compromised, contact Youth Protection Services at :

  • 819-964-2905 ext. 874 (between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)

  • 819-272-5597 (outside of opening hours)

  • Toll-free number: 1 833-964-2905 ext. 874

Before reporting, however, make sure you can provide as much information as possible : Report fact sheet

Note that the identity of the person who reports a case is kept confidential.
