DUTY TO REPORT
We have a moral obligation to protect our children from harm, so that they can live in safety and grow up to become our community’s leaders.
Every adult in Ontario has a legal obligation to report known or suspected child abuse or neglect to a Children’s Aid Society. Native Child and Family Services of Toronto is the Children’s Aid Society for the Native community in Toronto, so if you know or suspect that a child is being abused, call us right away at 416.969.8510, 24 hours a day.
We’re always available to talk about your concerns, and the information you give us, including your identity, will remain confidential whenever possible.
You don’t need to be sure!
Even if you just suspect that a child is being abused or neglected, call us. It is our job to figure out if what is happening is abuse or neglect.
