Child Abuse Hotlines - Canada - Canadian

If you need help, need to talk to someone about what's going on, or have questions about child abuse or child neglect, or the reporting process, or need resources in your area - call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline.

If you are being abused, please tell a safe person – that’s someone you can trust like a teacher, counselor, school nurse, neighbor or parent. You can also call Childhelp. Remember: No one has the right to abuse you. You don’t deserve to be abused. It’s not your fault that you are being treated this way. Please do not be alone with anyone who hurts you.

Find an adult you trust and tell them what is happening. If they don’t believe you, keep telling other adults until someone does believe you!

If you are too nervous or scared to tell someone you know about the abuse, Childhelp counselors can make a three-way call so that you, the hotline counselor, and the person taking the report in your area are all on the telephone at the same time. Before you call to make the report, the hotline counselor can tell you what may happen after a report of abuse is made.

Run Away Hotlines - Canada - Canadian

Operation Come Home

Toll-Free 1 800 668 4663 | Local 613 230 4663 - 8am-4pm Monday to Friday.

Reunite is our founding program that reunites runaway youth with their families across Canada. If home is not an option, we work with the youth and existing agencies in that city to find an alternative solution. In order to be eligible, a youth must be between 16-21 years of age and must have run away from home. We will not travel any youth with pending legal issues. After a successful reunite is made, we will conduct a one-month follow up with the family and offer any assistance needed at that time.

in partnership with the Canadian Bus Association and Greyhound Canada, Operation Come Home is able to help runaway youth. Greyhound Canada provides 125 one way tickets per year to help these youth travel home safely to their families.
