How to Report Sexual Exploitation on the Internet

If you are aware of a child at immediate risk of online sexual assault or exploitation, call 9-1-1 immediately or call the Winnipeg Police Service at 204-986-6222 for help.

If you find child sexual abuse imagery online or become aware of an online incident which may involve the sexual exploitation of a child, report the offence to Cybertip.ca – Canada’s national tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children and youth.

  • Child trafficking
  • Making sexually explicit material available to a child

Reports may be submitted to Cybertip.ca via their website (https://www.cybertip.ca) or toll-free 24-hr line at 1-866-658-9022.  Reporting persons have the option to remain anonymous when submitting a report. 

 

What does Cybertip!ca do?

Cybertip.ca is staffed by experienced analysts who review, evaluate, verify and classify every complaint to determine which ones appear to violate Canadian law.

Commit to Kids Program

The Commit to Kids program offers a comprehensive approach to preventing child sexual abuse in child-serving organizations, such as sport leagues, schools, childcare centres, music programs, recreations programs and services, etc. There are also resources available for parents, so together with the organization, adults can take an active, participatory role in protecting children in their care.
In Canada, one in 10 children experience child sexual abuse.
Child-serving organizations are at a greater risk of attracting employees or volunteers who may have a propensity to take advantage of opportunities to exploit/sexually abuse children. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection created Commit to Kids knowing within child-serving organizations people often rely on common sense rather than having established and well-communicated policies to protect children from sexual abuse. Often responsible adults fail to act even if they say they were noticing inappropriate behaviour because they were unsure what to do about it.
The Commit to Kids program empowers individuals with knowledge about what constitutes high-risk behaviour and situations, and how to confidently go about bringing forward concerns that don’t constitute abuse but are behaviours considered to be inappropriate or misconduct. The program includes tools to help organizations develop guidelines around professional boundaries for adults working with children. These guidelines help manage risk and promote the protection of children.
Through the Commit to Kids program participants also learn how to:

  • Prevent child sexual abuse
  • Evaluate and manage risk in the organization
  • Decipher between concerns of misconduct and suspicions of child sexual abuse
  • Understand the role boundaries play in child protection
  • Establish guidelines for clear boundaries between adults and children
  • Report misconduct and/or suspicions of child sexual abuse
  • Develop policies and procedures to protect children

Commit to Kids’ professional development is far reaching, offering tailored resources for child-serving organizations, parents and law enforcement agencies. Training is now available in a convenient online format, as well as through printed materials and electronic sample policies, plans and reproducible forms that can easily be amended and used by organizations.
