Child Find is established across Canada as a network of charitable, non-profit organizations that deliver services to families whose children go missing unexpectedly.
Child Find started in Alberta in 1983 in response to the disappearance of a 6 1/2 year old Edmonton girl. Child Find in British Columbia was established the same year. Chapters in Kelowna (1988) and Victoria (out of the Michael Dunahee Search Centre) were subsequently opened.
Child Find opened a new office in Prince George in March 1998 as part of a commitment to provide better coordination across the province.
Today Child Find BC Is located in Victoria BC. Child Find BC supports community satellite resource centres throughout BC. Please call us to locate a centre nearest your community.Our office is available as a resource for families in need and we work closely with community groups, and community policing in order to support families, protect children and educate the public.
