Make Noise for the Missing
May 25th is National Missing Children’s Day. To mark this important day of remembrance, the Missing Children’s Network will host a special event at the Centre de loisirs communautaires Lajeunesse in Montreal from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
Make Noise for Missing Children is a unique event designed to raise awareness about the plight of missing children and the importance of prevention. On location, young and old alike will be able to test their Safety IQ by participating in a variety of fun and interactive safety games and activities. Montreal Police will also be on hand and will distribute an array of personal safety pamphlets for the entire family. As well, participants will have the opportunity to take part in a dynamic tam tam session, and have the chance to create their very own noise-makers. The activity concludes with a festive parade around the park where all the missing children’s names will be called out.
Among the many special guests in attendance will be several parents of missing children. Distinguished guest speakers include Anie Samson, Mayor of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough; Justin Trudeau, leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and MP for the riding of Papineau, as well as Johanne Blouin, legendary singer and celebrity Spokesperson for the Missing Children’s Network.
Every year in Quebec, an estimated 7,000 children are reported missing to law enforcement. The majority of these children are safely located within the first week of their disappearance. However, many remain missing for several weeks, months and even years.
Come one, come all! Help make our first edition of Make Noise for the Missing a loud success!

In time for Missing Children’s Month, the Missing Children's Network is launching a grassroots movement that puts the faces of missing children where they have never been before – on postage stamps.
Via a new website MissingKidsStamps.ca, launched on May 1st, each visitor will have the chance to create his own stamps. These photographs of missing children will then be sent to homes and offices across Canada and around the world and hopefully, into the hands of someone who might recognize them. Because so much of today’s correspondence is electronic, you will be able to get an ‘e-signature’, allowing you to add Missing Kids Stamps to your e-mails and other e-correspondence.
MissingKidsStamps.ca, developed by the Canadian Ad Agency Lowe Roche, uses personalized stamp technology to entice individual Canadians to join the struggle to bring these children home.
Join the movement and create your stamps today!
