Founded in 1985, the Missing Children’s Network is a non-profit organization whose mission is to assist parents in the search for their missing child, and to educate the public in order to decrease the occurrence of children disappearing.

Our objectives are
  • To support and counsel families whose child has either been abducted by a stranger or family member or whose youth has run away from home;
  • To collaborate with law enforcement and government agencies in order to locate and recover missing children and return them safe and sound to their families;
  • To aid in preventing the abduction, aggression and exploitation of children and youth;

To sensitize and educate the public about children’s personal safety and the prevention of their disappearances.


The Missing Children’s Network works proactively with families, law enforcement, social-service agencies and other community organizations to assist families in crisis. Our Case Managers provide a support network for child victims and their families and offer assistance with reunification, counselling, referrals, support and crisis intervention services.

The Missing Children’s Network is a recognized partner of the National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, in addition to being an active member of AMECO (Association of Missing and Exploited Children’s Organizations), an international association of reputable non-profit organizations that serve missing and exploited children, their families and law enforcement.

The organization also works closely with Missingkids.ca in providing case management support to francophone families outside of Quebec.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Thanks to the nice weather many of you will be celebrating outside this week-end of festivities with your family and friends! We would like to take the time to remind you of a few important safety tips to talk about with your children:

• Upon arrival at your destination, identify with your child all the people and places where he can seek help if needed.
• Remind your child that he must stay within eyesight at all times.
• Should your child become separated from you, go to the nearest Help/Information Centre and ask for assistance from an employee. This person is usually identified with a name badge.
• Tell your child if they are approached by anyone who tries to take them away that they are to yell, “This person is not my father (mother)! I need help!”
• Remind your child to never leave to look for you or return to the car without you.
• Instruct your child to never accept gifts, prizes or offers from anyone without first asking for your permission

Un petit mot d'encouragement pour les recherches de Ariel Jeffrey Kouakou, 10 ans:

«Bon matin à vous tous je prends un instant pour dire que mes pensées sont avec le petit garçon manquant à l’appel à Montréal. Je suis de tout cœur en pensées avec la famille, et je prie énormément qu’on le retrouve sain et sauf. J’ai donc beaucoup de peine pour eux il y a juste un mot pour tout cela : ESPOIR, car sans espoir il n’y a rien.»

Dolorès, maman de Jolène Riendeau

Two whole years has passed since Gilberto Cardinal-Fernandes vanished without a trace!

Two years ago on this day Gilberto told his roommate that he was going for a walk and not to worry. Sadly he has not been seen since.
Today, we think of his family who wishes nothing more than to see him again. With your help, we can give the family the gift of closure. Thank you for sharing Gilberto’s poster. One tip is all we need to resolve this case.
