May 2017 is Missing Children's Month

Released on May 1, 2017

May 2017 has been proclaimed Missing Children’s Month in Saskatchewan.

This month coincides with Child Find Saskatchewan’s Annual Green Ribbon of Hope Campaign, an initiative that began 26 years ago as a way for the students and faculty at Kristen French’s secondary school in St. Catharines, Ontario to honour her memory.

“Wearing a Green Ribbon of Hope during the month of May is a way to show your concern for missing children and their families, and to support the good work of Child Find Saskatchewan,” Social Services Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “A missing child is everyone’s responsibility, and proclaiming May as Missing Children’s Month is an excellent reminder of this fact.”

Green ribbons are available in communities across Saskatchewan.  To find the location nearest you, please contact Child Find Saskatchewan at 306-955-0070.  Proceeds generated by the campaign support Child Find Saskatchewan to continue their mandate of assisting in the search process for missing children and the education of children and adults about abduction.

“Child Find Saskatchewan is a valued partner, and they play an important role in assisting law enforcement agencies and other partners to locate missing children,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “We are pleased to support them in their community education and awareness efforts.”

The Ministry of Justice provided $50,000 to Child Find Saskatchewan in March 2017 to support programs offered by the organization such as the “All About Me” I.D. clinics and the Alert Youth program.  Child Find Saskatchewan is also hosting a Missing Children’s Month fundraiser breakfast on May 25 at Saskatoon’s Teachers' Credit Union.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  To RSVP to the breakfast, please email childfind@childfind.sk.ca by May 22.

“We believe that all children have the right to be safe and are dedicated to promote awareness of the issues relating to missing children,” Child Find Saskatchewan President Phyllis Hallatt said.  “We want to thank everyone who wears a Green Ribbon for sending the message to missing children and their families across Canada that there is hope.”
