To file a report
Any time—day or night
If you believe that a child or teen is being severely neglected, or physically, psychologically or sexually abused, has been abandoned, or has serious behavioural problems involving drugs, attempted suicide, running away from home, or petty crimes, you have an obligation to report this situation to the Directeur de la protection de la jeunesse (DPJ) for the Montérégie region.
If you are a professional who knows of a child or teen in this type of situation, the Youth Protection Act obliges you to immediately advise the Directeur de la protection de la jeunesse for the Montérégie region.
Reports to the DYP are confidential.
