Child abuse is wrong: J2-369/2016E-PDF

what can I do?

“This booklet is for the parents or guardians of children. It talks about child abuse in families. It answers questions about the law on child abuse in Canada. This booklet may also be useful even if you are not a parent, but you believe a child you know is being abused. Although laws in Canada related to children may use different ages, in this booklet, a child means a person less than 18 years old. This booklet answers questions like: What types of abuse can children go through? Where can you find help as a parent or guardian? What kind of discipline is okay to use with your children? When should you report suspected child abuse?"--p. 2.
