May 25 marks National Missing Children’s Day, as the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and partner agencies across the country increase awareness of the Our Missing Children program.
The CBSA is reminding parents and guardians of the importance of travelling with the proper documents while accompanying children over the border.
The CBSA says to always have a children’s identification ready, such as birch certificate, baptismal certificate, passport, or immigration document, copies of legal documents if the parents share custody, and ensure parents are in the same vehicle as their child if crossing by land with a group of vehicles.
Any individual with information about missing children can call 1-877-318-3576.
