Child Abuse in Canada

The Public Health Agency of Canada has released the Canadian Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect – 2003. This nation-wide study reports the incidence of child abuse as reported to Canadian child welfare services. There was an overall increase in the annual incidence rate since 1998, when the last incidence study was done. This increase is due to a number of reasons, including changes in reporting. The full report can be downloaded here.
