After Hours

If you have any concerns or suspect a child is being abused in a First Nation Community, please call Mi’kmaw Family and Children’s Services immediately.  We have emergency service 24 hours a day, so you can call anytime. 

The Indian Brook office covers the mainland communities (1-800-263-8686)
The Eskasoni office covers the Cape Breton communities (1-800-263-8300)

If the child lives off of a First Nation community, please contact the Department of Community Services.  The following is a list of the Child Welfare Offices (off reserve) around the province.
