Are you in danger? Is
someone you know being threatened? Want to make a difference?
Up. Be Heard. Get help.
Call the Youth Against Violence Line at 1-800-680-4264 and talk one-on-one
to a YAV Line support worker 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or e-mail us at email@example.com.
If you're in any way concerned about your safety or the safety of others, we
can help. Anything you say is kept completely confidential and you remain
totally anonymous - we don't have call display either. And, because the YAV
Line is a multilingual service, we can talk to you in your language.
Concerned parents, teachers, caregivers, service providers and others are
also welcome to call for information and assistance.
If you are in immediate danger, please call 911 or your local police
Help Line for

Seniors Abuse and Information Line
Abuse & Information Line (SAIL)
The Seniors Abuse and Information Line (SAIL) is a toll free telephone line
which is staffed 7 days a week (excluding holidays), 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
SAIL is a safe place for older adults, and those who care about them, to
talk to someone about situations where they feel they are being abused or
mistreated, or to receive information about elder abuse prevention.
The staff and volunteers who answer SAIL are trained to provide a listening,
non-judgmental and supportive ear. They will refer callers with a
legal question or problem to our legal staff. Callers who are age 50+ and
are victims of abuse or family and sexual violence, and who need practical
and emotional support may be referred to our Victim Services Program which also provides
information, support and referrals to services in the community.
It is a good idea to call between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., Monday to Friday, or
between 8 a.m. and 8.p.m. on the weekends, as the SAIL line is not as busy
at those times, and you will get through more quickly.
Language interpretation is available for SAIL callers from Monday through
Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The SAIL line is made possible thanks to funding from the Province of
