Youth Protection When does Youth Protection get involved and what are the reasons ? What do you do if you hear a friend is being mistreated at home by their parents? This section will help you navigate the bureaucracy and make you feel empowered to get some information on how the Director of Youth Protection operates and to what extent. This page contains general information about legal matters. This information is not advice, and should not be treated as such. If you need legal advice, you should contact a lawyer or Head and Hands. We have a legal clinic that runs every Wednesday and Thursday evening with volunteer lawyers who provide legal advice. Please call us at 514-481-0277 to book an appointment.
