Child Abuse and Neglect in Canada

Lea Tufford

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses what happens after a report to Child Protection Services (CPS), including foundations of CPS authority, contact with the reporting source, interviews with children, parental consent, physical examinations, interviewer skills, service to Indigenous children, and practice models. This content is embedded in a demonstration of the child protection services path. By clarifying the processes and potential outcomes of a child protection investigation, this chapter aims to increase mandatory reporters’ comfort level and knowledge base when contacting CPS. The information provided herein about child protection investigations aims to increase reporters’ sense of confidence and credibility when reporting, which may subsequently enhance their feeling of efficacy when advocating for the family.
