Mission

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.

Network

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.

At the request of the Service de Police de la ville de Laval, the Missing Children’s Network is requesting your collaboration in the search for Jennifer Allard-Gould, 16 years old from Laval last seen June 2nd, 2020.

Information leads us to believe that Jennifer may be in the Montreal area.

With our workshops suspended for the remainder of the school year, the Missing Children’s Network is pleased to offer a variety of activities for pre-teens, inspired by our SHINE program. It is important that we continue to raise awareness and prevent the abuse and sexual exploitation of our youth. These activities can be conducted either in a classroom setting or at home with your family. Feel free to add your personal touch!

Today’s post is all about self-esteem: a key element in the construction of identity for youth, allowing them to resist to peer pressure and bad influences. We propose the following two activities: The Hope Box and I am a Star!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. It will be our pleasure to assist you.

The present pandemic has taught us all about the importance of social distancing and the 2 meter rule. When speaking with your children about social distancing, we suggest you also help them understand that they do not have to engage in conversations with adults that approach them. Adults should ask adults for help – NOT children! A fun way to reinforce this concept is to instruct them to keep at least three giant steps between themselves and someone they don’t know or who makes them feel uncomfortable.La pandémie actuelle nous a appris combien il est important de respecter la distanciation sociale et la règle de deux mètres. Lorsqu’on parle de distanciation sociale avec les enfants, nous vous encourageons également à leur faire comprendre qu’ils ne sont pas obligés de parler avec des adultes qui les approchent. Un adulte devrait toujours demander de l’aide à un autre adulte; pas à un enfant! Une manière amusante d’intégrer cette notion est de leur apprendre à garder trois pas de géant entre eux et une personne qu’ils ne connaissent pas ou qui les rend inconfortables. ...
