On January 24, 2005, the fight against child pornography and child expolitation received a boost with the national launch of Cybertip.ca. This site provides the public with information, education and resources as well as support and referral services, to help Canadians keep themselves and their families safe on the Internet.
WHAT IS CYBERTIP.CA?
Cybertip.ca is Canada’s National Tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children. It is a centralized web portal for receiving and addressing reports from the public regarding child pornography, luring, child sex tourism, and children who are exploited through prostitution. Cybertip.ca also provides the public with information, referrals and other resources to help Canadians keep their children safe while on the Internet.
Child Find Manitoba is credited with a leadership role in developing Cybertip.ca and this site is operated as one of the organization’s core services.
As Canada’s National tipline, Cybertip.ca’s mandate is to protect children from online sexual exploitation by:
- Receiving and analyzing tips from the public about potentially illegal material and activities regarding the online sexual exploitation of children, and referring leads to the appropriate law enforcement agency; and
- Providing the public with information and other resources, as well as support and referral services to help Canadians keep themselves and their families’ safe while on the Internet.
If you want to report a incident of internet child exploitation, you can contact your local police department, go to cybertip.ca, or call Toll Free: 1-866-658-9022.
