General Canadian Numbers/Information

This is an excellent website and has literally thousands of phone numbers to call for every problem under the sun, from Rape, to Gambling Addiction, to Counselling to... you get the picture.

http://www.healthyplace.com/site/resources.htm

Okay, so I've seen the Kids Help Phone number in here two or three times, but this is important: KIDS HELP PHONE ONLY WORKS IN CANADA - anywhere in Canada yes, but I don't think it was mentioned that it is a national help line.

Kids Help Phone moderators can make suggestions as to where to go for more help, such as 'safe houses', doctors, counsellors and the such. It is available in both English and French (as we are a bilingual country). They can also inform you on laws in your area, for example, in Ontario at the age of 16, you can move out of your parent's/guardian's home.

Kids Help Phone does not track calls, does not have caller ID, and calls to this help line will not appear on your phone bill (except perhaps on a cell phone). The moderators there will help anyone under the age of 21, and will refer adults to other lines, such as 310-COPE

For help from the moderators of that line, they also have a website with a discussion forum where they will answer questions.
