Canadian Centre for Child Protection Canadian Centre for Child Protection

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a charitable organization dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Our goal is to reduce child victimization by providing programs and services to Canadians. We do this through public awareness activities, our personal safety education program (Kids in the Know), our national tipline to report online sexual abuse of children (Cybertip.ca), our program to help organizations prevent child sexual abuse (Commit to Kids), and our national missing children services program (MissingKids.ca).

Safer Internet Day (February 10, 2015)

Every February, people and organizations in countries around the globe join forces for Safer Internet Day (SID) to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people. In Canada, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (Canadian Centre), through Cybertip.ca, coordinates SID activities. As part of this initiative, the Canadian Centre, with support from police, provincial and territorial governments, and the private sector, distributes approximately one million Internet safety resources to Canadian schools free of charge.
