Our Commitment To Finding Missing Children

Missing Children Society of Canada knows that pausing for a moment can mean the difference between a child who stays missing and one who can be located and returned to safety. That's why we don't believe in giving up – not when kids are in danger, not when there is too much at stake. 

The Missing Children Society of Canada's (MCSC) mandate is to help return missing children to a safe environment. The organization established in 1986 has evolved from one distributing posters to find a missing child to one embracing the latest technology to help police in the search for that child.

MCSC also reaches out to enlist the help of other professionals in the search and location of missing children in addition to working with traditional media and online/social media to bring public awareness to cases of missing kids.

MCSC provides affected families with knowledge and resources throughout the search and reunification while ensuring that all its programs are free so that all families in need of help receive it, regardless of their financial situation.


"For more than 37 years, the Missing Children Society of Canada has worked tirelessly to protect children and serve families. We believe there is no greater calling."

- Amanda Pick, Chief Executive Officer


In 2017, the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children appointed MCSC as the Canadian non-governmental organization to participate in the Global Missing Children Network alongside the RCMP. The Global Missing Children’s Network is an organization that includes agencies from 30 countries around the world.  Members of the network share ideas, tools and research related to missing children and child abduction.

MCSC is committed to the search for as long as there are missing children.
