Parental Neglect


The Parents in action project aims to facilitate the understanding of what is child neglect and the role of parents among immigrant families who have recently arrived in Quebec.

The project consists of creating multilingual guides and resources to raise awareness among immigrant families about parental neglect. The following topics will be addressed in this project:

  • What is parental neglect? ;
  • What does the law on parental neglect say in Quebec?;
  • What is the DYP and its role? ;
  • The different types of neglect;
  • Resources and tools on health, education and more.

This project is funded by the Integrated Health and Social Services University Network for West-Central Montreal (CIUSSS West-Central Montreal).
