Cybertip.ca celebrates 15 years of activity
- Canadian Centre for Child Protection
In September, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection – member of the INHOPE network of internet hotlines and convenor of the Canadian Safer Internet Day Committee - marked 15 years of operating Cybertip.ca, Canada's tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children.
Recognising the journey of the tipline over the last 15 years, and the collaborative work with law enforcement, child welfare, industry and INHOPE member hotlines, Cybertip.ca has taken time to reflect on these within a 15-Year Anniversary Report outlining the things it has learned along the way and where it needs to go moving forward.
With this important milestone, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection is not only highlighting the important work of the tipline but is also sharing the very important finalised results of its international survey for survivors whose child sexual abuse was recorded. The Canadian Centre has developed and delivered a survey to survivors of child sexual abuse whose images may have been distributed online. The Centre has now released a full report on the results the survey, pledging to use what has been learned from those results to fight for survivors and help prevent children from being victimised. Read the report: Survivors' survey: Results and recommendations here.
