About Us

Who We Are

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a registered charitable organization dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Our goal is to reduce child victimization by providing programs and services to the Canadian public.

  • Our Mission:
    • REDUCE the incidence of missing and sexually exploited children
    • EDUCATE the public on child personal safety and sexual exploitation
    • ASSIST in the location of missing children
    • ADVOCATE for and increase awareness about issues relating to missing and sexually exploited children

    For more than 30 years, we have been providing grassroots service delivery, first as Child Find Manitoba and then through the successful evolution into the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (May 2006). We have a strong history of incorporating innovative strategies to reduce child victimization and continue to grow and learn.
