Cybertip.ca

Cybertip.ca

Cybertip.ca is Canada's official tipline for reporting online child sexual exploitation including child pornography, luring, children exploited through prostitution and travelling sex-offenders. Cybertip.ca was launched as the national tipline with support from the Government of Canada in January 2005. The tipline triages reports from the public and forwards those that are potentially illegal to law enforcement in the appropriate jurisdiction. Cybertip.ca contributes to public education and prevention through its online safety strategies and national awareness campaigns.

Cybertip.ca operates as one of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection's core services. Although the majority of Cybertip.ca's reports are provided online, the public is also able to contact the tipline by phone or fax.

Every day Canadians are encountering child pornography on the Internet, and have used Cybertip.ca to report over 19,000 suspected cases. As the central clearinghouse for online child exploitation, Cybertip.ca maintains a regularly updated list of specific foreign-hosted Internet addresses (URLs) associated with images of child sexual abuse, and provide that list in a secure manner to participating ISPs. Launched in January 2007, Project Cleanfeed Canada is designed to reduce accidental access to child sexual abuse images, as well as create a disincentive for those trying to access or distribute child pornography. Participating ISP's include Bell, Telus, Shaw, MTS Allstream, and SaskTel
