The RCMP encourages all members of our communities to be a voice for those children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada’s National tip line for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
In October 2008, Nova Scotia introduced legislation making it mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Children and Family Services Act.
