Tips for enjoyable and safe outings

Every year in Canada, dozens of children get lost in public places. This experience is a harrowing one for both the parents and the child. It is so easy for both adults and children to become easily distracted by all the excitement and attractions and it only takes a few seconds for a young child to disappear. We encourage you to take a few minutes to plan your next outing and don’t forget to include your children in that process. By planning ahead of time, the experience will be a more enjoyable one from beginning to end!

Please consider the following when planning outings in public places:

– Consider dressing your children in brightly coloured clothes so they may be more easily spotted.
– Make sure to download the SIGN4L application with a recent photo of your child. It will prove to be a valuable tool in the event that you are separated from your child.

One year ago today, we launched SHINE, a program tailored for preteens whose aim is to prevent them from running away and falling victim to sexual exploitation!

The creation and implementation of SHINE was made possible thanks to a substantial grant by an anonymous donor, as well as a generous contribution by the Air Canada Foundation. This initiative has allowed us to visit more than 150 schools and increase the personal safety of over 15,000 youths!

If you would like for your child’s school to participate in this unique and educational program, available in both English and French, to schools all across Quebec, please contact Cynthia Patenaude at 514 843-4333 or c.patenaude@reseauenfantsretour.ong

“It’s a privilege to be able to contribute to your efforts in keeping our children safe.  When I saw the stats particularly for Quebec, it really hit home the urgency to continue to educate our kids on the hazards that exist and ways to keep themselves safe.”

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!!
