Helpline for Children
It is your duty to report child abuse. Call the Helpline for Children when you have a concern about the safety and well-being of a child at 310-1234. This is a toll free number. It is a local telephone number anywhere in the province.
The Child, Family and Community Service Act is the legislative authority for the ministry's Child Protection Services. Under the Act, the Minister designates the Director of Child Protection, who in turn delegates the provision of child protection services across the province to child protection social workers.
