Child Abuse Prevention Month
October is Child Abuse Prevention Month. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the purple ribbon – the provincial symbol for the campaign – which began right here in Durham Region.
During Child Abuse Prevention Month, CASs across Ontario highlight the importance of calling Children’s Aid with concerns about the safety or well-being of a child. Children’s Aid Societies are an essential part of the provincial safety net for children, but we rely on professional and public referrals to do our work.
