WHEN SHOULD I CALL CAS?

We all share a responsibility to protect children from harm. Ontario's Child and Family Services Act (CFSA) provides for the protection of children. If someone has reasonable grounds to suspect that a child is or may be in need of protection, they must make a report directly to a CAS.

A phone call to us will bring help to a child who is being or at-risk of being abused or neglected.

If you suspect child neglect or abuse, please call us immediately.

905.895.2318 | 1.800.718.3850

We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You do not need proof of abuse or neglect, your suspicions are enough. The CAS is responsible for investigating and assessing abuse and neglect, and the ultimate case management.
