Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect: It's Your Duty

01/01/14

Did You Know?

All Ontarians have an ongoing, legal obligation to directly and promptly contact their local Children’s Aid if they suspect a child is or may be in need of protection. In addition, every person who performs professional or social duties with respect to children is subject to a penalty if they fail to report information related to a child they suspect is or may be abused or neglected. (Child and Family Services Act s.72)
