This website is an informative, truth giving account from 2007 to present about the mistreatment and deaths of Canadian children who are in care. Protecting Canadian Children seeks no apology, no lawsuit, nor recognition, but seeks ACTION to protect our children and our country.

IT IS OUR DUTY TO PROTECT THOSE WITHOUT A VOICE

We are a committed, honourable group of concerned citizens based in Canada. We are everyday people leading ordinary lives who will not be mesmerized by political charade. We are alarmed by the current state of affairs within Child Protective Services. Our group is bound by our strength to guarantee that we will never stop advocating until our vulnerable children become top priority according to Government Policy.

Present Situation

Canadians are too passive and need to act to rescue our children.
There is no government support or public awareness regarding children dying in Foster Care.
Too many children are dying while in the care of the CCAS / CAS.

Desired Situation

Motivate Canadians to action and advocacy.
Demad the government act on behalf of children in the Foster Care System.
To save Children’s Lives.

Our Goal

To educate and inform on behalf of the next generation.

DEDICATED PROVINCIAL REPRESENTATIVES

Since the beginning of history children throughout the world have been exploited by adults. They continue to be brutally exploited in many countries. Child abuse is a prevalent problem everywhere and Canada is no exception. Children have the right to grow up free from abuse and all Canadians have a duty to ensure this happens. We are a small but dedicated group of individuals with an ambitious goal and a strong will. Too many children are dying while in the care of the CCAS / CAS and we will not stop until the government does something to act on behalf of children in the Foster Care System.

Below are brief snippets of stories, examples of how the the Child Protection System is failing us. More importantly, they show how the system is failing the children. Some stories show heavy handed almost Draconian tactics, while others display a complete lack of action. Read on, this is the tip of the iceberg, and you and your children may be passengers on the Titanic.

  • Home Alone
    Child in care for 6 months under false pretenses
    Here is the story of a young lady with no extended family. Her situation is one of being alone except for her son. She was diagnosed with a disease and had to go to hospital for surgery. She trusted the CCAS and with nowhere else to turn, called them to take care of her son for the 21 days she needed to recuperate from surgery. They did this and the first time everything when well. However, when she needed to go for a second round of surgery and again asked CCAS to take care of her son the outcome was very different. She is illiterate and was asked to sign some papers from the CCAS. These papers turned out to be an authorisation to put the child into care for six months. It was not made clear to her that her son was going to be kept for six months, or she would not have signed the papers. They are now keeping her son for six months, under the auspices that she is taking medication for her health problem. She is an excellent mother and was using the CCAS to help her take care of her son. She has never broken any laws and has no addictions of any kind. This woman wants to go public but her lawyer told her not to get involved.

    • Failure to Act
      Unheeded warnings end in death of child
      I was working in Niagara Falls, Ontario when a co-worker told me about this foster home that her neighbour called CCAS several times about to report that the couple was neglecting the children. No investigation was ever done, in spite of all the warning signs. They failed to act and by ignoring the obvious, failed to protect the children under their care. A month after I had heard the complaints about this foster home a little 3 year old boy ended up in a body bag.

  • Family First, Not this Time.
    Foster care chosen over grandmother. 
    In yet another case, the CCAS apprehended a 9 year old grandchild before making any inquiries as to availability of alternate care for the boy. The grandmother is a professional caregiver of children and has had over 2,000 children in her care over the past 20 years. She phoned the CCAS IMMEDIATELY requesting she be allowed to take care of her grandson. She was told to get a lawyer and take it to court. He ended up in foster care for a week. This action completely unnecessary and caused anxiety and costs that could easily have been avoided.

Our Mission – Children First

It is a tragedy to see the danger that now exists in The Catholic Children’s Aid Society (CCAS), Children’s Aid Society (CAS) and the Family Court System. Our mission is to break the cycle of abuse within our system and to ensure that children everywhere are given back the childhood which was so wrongfully taken away from them.

Our Commitment

To work together with purpose and determination to create a happy place for all our children. A place from which they can trust, and have a future full of hopes and dreams.

Our Hope

Our hope is to rebuild, to restore, to preserve what CCAS/CAS, and the Family Court was originally designed for …
to bring Hope back into our lives, and have Fear gone forever.

Our Goal

To redefine child abuse as a safety problem. In Canada, domestic violence has been reclassified as assault. That means the police must press charges. The message is clear: Beat a woman and go to jail. We must institute a similar practice for abused children. “Child abuse is, first and foremost, a criminal act, and is therefore a police matter.” It is not purely a “treatment” and social service issue. Assigning these investigations to the police would allow child welfare professionals to do what they should be do best; provide a variety of supportive services to troubled families. Equally important, the threat of stiff criminal penalties might cause the abusive caregiver to think twice.
