OTTAWA, May 25, 2013 - Today, the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety, issued the following statement to mark National Missing Children's Day:

“Our Government is committed to keeping our streets and communities safe, particularly when it comes to the most vulnerable members of society - our children. We will continue to work with our partners to protect children in our communities.

Every year, thousands of children go missing around the world. National Missing Children's Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of missing children cases in Canada and to remind all Canadians of the important role they can play in bringing these children home.

We are asking all Canadians to help by visiting Reporting information about missing children's cases could help bring a loved one home to their family.

Missing Children's Day is also an opportunity to highlight the collaborative efforts of all ‘Our Missing Children' program partners who work tirelessly to reunite missing children with their families. The program is a collaborative effort of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade and the Department of Justice. Through this program, partner organizations exchange vital information to help locate missing children and reunite them with their families.”
