Children and youth show signs of maltreatment in different ways. There may be physical signs on their body, or in their emotional state or behaviour. Sometimes the signs are subtle. Know how to watch for signs that something may be wrong or that abuse or neglect is happening or at risk of happening.
You do not need to prove that abuse or neglect has occurred. You just need to let us know about your concerns. Your local Children’s Aid Society is available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact us at 705-566-3113 or 1-877-272-4334.
