ReportON is a service provided by the Government of Ontario that is designed to prevent abuse against adults with developmental disabilities.
If you are, or if you see or suspect an adult with a developmental disability being abused or neglected, you can contact ReportON 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Tel TTY: 416-916-0549
Toll-free TTY: 1-844-309-1025
Even if you’re not certain you’re witnessing abuse or neglect we encourage you to call. There will be no consequences for you and you might make a real difference in someone’s life. Abuse or neglect might be at the hands of the person’s family, friends, caregiver, or a stranger.
ReportON will look into all non-emergency reports relating to adults receiving ministry-funded developmental services and will make referrals to appropriate supports for matters that are outside our jurisdiction. This may include referrals to the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee or police services.
