(Source: Prince Edward Island Adult Protection) Violence Against Children and Youth •Police reported that province-wide in 2013, 71 children and youth age 0-17 years were victims of family violence substantiated by police to be Criminal Code offences. Family violence refers to violence committed by parents, siblings, extended family and spouses. The Criminal Code and provincial/territorial child protection legislation together cover a broad spectrum of maltreatment and violence perpetrated against children and youth. Some types of child maltreatment may never reach the criminal threshold and would therefore not result in a police response or Criminal Code charges. However, in many cases, these occurrences would still be considered serious events requiring the involvement of provincial/territorial child welfare services.
