Support & Resources during COVID-19
With schools now closed due to COVID-19, this may leave some children at greater risk of abuse or harm. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P), a national charity dedicated to the personal safety of all children, has provided a list of resources dedicated to supporting families, caregivers and educators during the pandemic.

Children who are at home will potentially have more unrestricted time online. Through its program Cybertip.ca, C3P encourages families to have conversations about internet safety and to work together to implement strategies that ensures everyone’s digital well-being.
