International child abductions : a guide for affected parents.: FR5-71/2023E-PDF

"An international child abduction occurs when a child is taken from or kept outside Canada (usually by a parent or guardian) in breach of the rights of custody of another person (usually those of the other parent) or in breach of a court order. International child abductions are difficult and complex situations. Unfortunately, they are common. Every year, Canadian children are wrongfully taken from Canada or held in another country by abducting parents. … This guidebook has information about: preventing an abduction, stopping an abduction in progress, finding your child in a foreign country, and bringing your child back to Canada. It also has lists of resources and organizations you can turn to for help and checklists of information you will need during each stage of the process"--Introduction, page 2.
