Launch of Missing Children’s Month
In 1986, the Solicitor General of Canada proclaimed May 25th as National Missing Children’s Day. Over the years, the Missing Children’s Network has declared May to be Missing Children Month not only to raise awareness about the plight of missing children in Quebec but also to inform parents and educators about what they can do in order to better protect their children against abduction, aggression and exploitation.
According to the RCMP’s latest statistics, last year, in Quebec alone, on average 19 children were reported missing daily. With 7,025 cases originating from Quebec, the province registered the 4th highest report of missing children in the country. Once again, runaway youth accounted for the majority of missing children reports. While 90% of these children were found within days of their disappearance, many will remain missing for weeks, months and even years. The longer they are missing, the more vulnerable they become.
“Every day, as we have been doing for the past 33 years, the Missing Children’s Network helps keep hope alive for dozens of families”, said Pina Arcamone, Director General of the organization. Our team is deeply committed to never stop searching for children until they are found, no matter the circumstances. For us, hope is not just a word, it’s our guiding principle.

Heartfelt words of gratitude
An American woman wrote to us the morning of March 29th to thank us for the help that we provided her with 19 years-ago when she was reunited with her son. Her kind words were for our Senior Case Manager, Patrick Bergeron:
It was wonderful speaking with you today. When I think of you, I am filled with gratitude that you were there for me and Sam when we needed you most. Thank you for what you did for us and thank you for everything you do for missing children and their families. You are a giant among men.”
This kind of testimony motivates our team to continue its quest to reunite families with their children!Abby
Since I have been donating to your organization, I have been very lucky not to have lost any of my children and I now have 4 grandchildren! I will always continue to support this cause that is very dear to me. Losing a child for a mere 20 seconds is such a dreadful feeling, and I could never ever imagine feeling like this until my child was returned home. I wish that so many other parents could share the same blessing I have had. My heart goes out to everyone who has a missing child. Keep up the fantastic work Pina , please. You and your team are amazing!!Sandra Bolduc
