Child Welfare Protection- Important Contact Information

The Department of Family Services would like to remind everyone that we all have a duty to report incidents of child abuse and neglect to the Family Wellness Division by calling your local family services office and speaking with a Community Social Services Worker.

If you are concerned about the safety and wellbeing of a child and/or youth, call your local Community Social Services Office:

  • Territory-wide contact: 1-844-FW-CHILD (1-844-392-4453)
  • Iqaluit:
    • 1. Social Services Office: (867) 975-5777
    • 2. Social Services Emergency: (867) 979-5650
    • 3. RCMP: (867) 975-1111

Social services and local RCMP contact information for each community can be found on the Family Wellness section of our website at https://www.gov.nu.ca/family-services/information/child-protection.

If you are concerned about the services that a child or youth are receiving or have comments or compliments to share, contact us at 1 855 522-5201 or email us at PublicRelationsFS@gov.nu.ca.
