DUTY TO REPORT

In Ontario, it is the law to report suspected child abuse or neglect.

Section 125 of the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017. states that members of the public, including professionals who work with children, must promptly report any suspicions that a child is, or may be, in need of protection to a children's aid society.

"Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect" explains the duty to report section of the Act and answers common questions about your reporting responsibilities.
