Keeping Kids Safe

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a national charity that works to reduce the incidence of missing and sexually exploited children/youth in Canada. In addition to work with sport and other child-serving sectors, we are part of the Government of Canada’s National Strategy for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation on the Internet, through our operation of Cybertip.ca – Canada’s tip line for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children.

Specifically in sport, Canadain Centre for Child Protection provides expertise, tools, resources, and support through our Commit to Kids framework. Commit to Kids offers a step-by-step plan to mitigate the risk of sexual abuse. The Commit to Kids program looks at and beyond ‘what we do when we suspect abuse’ and emphasizes expectations for adults interacting with children in sport, encourages bringing forward any concerns of misconduct towards children, and helps organizations with the development policies that enable safe adults to uphold standards of conduct that protect youth.

The program has two components:

1.       eLearning module: Commit to Kids for Coaches – a 2.5 hour online training that results in a certificate of complete and 3 NCCP PD points towards maintenance of certification / eLearning module: An Introduction to Safeguarding Children from Sexual Abuse – a 23 minute overview view which does not result in certification or PD points

2.       Commit to Kids Kit & Policies and Procedures Workbook - Combined, these resources provide:

· increased awareness and education on how child sexual abuse happens

· specific strategies on how to prevent abuse

· guidance on clear boundaries between employees/volunteers and children

· tools and information about handling allegations/reporting of abuse and reporting and addressing possible misconduct, in a sensitive, timely and effective manner
