Reporting to the Direction de la protection de la jeunesse (DPJ)

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, and children who present serious behavioural problems are silent victims.

Filing a report with the DPJ

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