Reporting to the Director of Youth Protection (DYP)

Screening of highly vulnerable children

Protecting children is not just the responsibility of parents, but also of the community as a whole. Whether you are a day care worker, a health care professional, a police officer, a neighbour, or a relative, you have an important role to play in identifying children in serious need of help.

Abandoned, neglected, psychologically abused, sexually abused, and physically abused children, as well as children who present serious behavioural problems must be reported.

If you consider that a situation does not need to be reported but that the child or his parents need help, resources are available!

Filing a report with the DPJ

To break the silence of a child and of his environment, reporting, reporting a situation is a key element in the youth protection system. The identity of the person who reports a child's situation will remain confidential.
