Steps to reporting inappropriate behavior
This visual is intended as a quick reference and is not meant to be exhaustive or to replace legal advice. Users are strongly encouraged to consult with any or all of child welfare, law enforcement and legal counsel as appropriate to a given situation. We all have a role to play in keeping children and youth safe and supported. While parents are primarily responsible for their children’s well-being, the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act requires you to report a concern if you believe a child is at risk.
Get help if you, or children you know, are being neglected, abused or sexually exploited. If you believe a child is at risk, you must report it. Help is available in multiple languages 24/7.
