Issues with Child Protection toll-free numbers

The toll-free Child Protection telephone numbers have been impacted by an issue affecting some Government of PEI toll-free numbers not being routed to the proper destination.

Until this issue has been resolved, anyone with a child protection concern is asked to call 1-902-368-6868.

By law, you must contact Child Protection Services if you think a child is being abused or neglected by a parent or guardian.

The vendor for Government toll free numbers has been notified and they are working to resolve the issues as soon as possible. A public advisory will be sent when the issue has been resolved.
