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.

On October 15, 1977, Jacques Chaput was last seen leaving his home in Cap-de- la-Madeleine. He has not been seen nor heard from since that fateful day.

Today, we are honouring Jacques Chaput and thank you for helping us to keep hope alive for this young man and his family.

Today on International #Dayofthegirl let's pay tribute to all girls! Here at the Missing Children’s Network, our team continuously works through our SHINE program in preventing sexual exploitation among youth, especially young girls.

We focus on prevention and believe that self-esteem and healthy egalitarian relationships are among the many solutions to this crisis.

Last week, members of our staff participated, along with several other organizations, in “Rendez-vous Maillage”, which took place at the YWCA Montreal. This meeting aimed to exchange views and find solutions to prevent sexual exploitation. By collaborating and joining hands, we can work together to solve this issue.

A special thanks to our partners at the YWCA, for citing and acknowledging our expertise on this matter.

Did you know that in Quebec, one in three runaways is a victim of sexual exploitation?
