Missing Children’s Month 2022

Every May, participates in Missing Children’s Month — a time dedicated to raising awareness about missing and abducted children and to continuing efforts to reunite missing children with their families.

This year, with the help of law enforcement and partners, we are highlighting the need for your help. You can help us find children missing from your communities — you can help us bring them home.

Search below by province for each child’s information, and spread the word.

Missing Children’s Day was originally declared in 1983 by U.S. President Ronald Reagan to honour 6-year-old Etan Patz, who disappeared from New York City on May 25, 1979. Etan’s disappearance garnered national media attention, which was rare at that time. Etan’s father, a professional photographer, distributed black-and-white photographs of Etan in an effort to find him, resulting in large-scale searches and public recognition of the risk of child abduction.
