Yesterday was the 19th annual review for the provincial directors of youth protection across Quebec.

“As a DPJ, you have to intervene when a child’s safety and development are compromised. However, if we understand quite easily what compromises the safety of a child, what about his development? This year, the DPJs have chosen to answer this question by presenting various innovative programs in place in Quebec that are already having a real impact in supporting the full development of children of different ages in different areas of their lives,” explained the DPJ in a press release. (Translated)

This year, a considerable increase in the number of reports has been observed. Here are the various statistics that have been revealed.
