Plan to Protect® was created to meet a need: abuse prevention. As society comes to better understand how and why abuse occurs, making abuse prevention a priority has been a natural progression.

The first edition of the Plan to Protect® manual was written in 1996, with the goal of eliminating the risk of abuse toward the vulnerable sector through the creation of effective policies and procedures. Since then, we have expanded our services to include training, policies and procedures development, an ongoing support community, and a wealth of resources for all of our members.

One of the most valued services Plan to Protect® offers is the assistance we provide organizations to help them meet requirements of insurance companies in order to qualify for abuse coverage*. Implementation of Plan to Protect® helps organizations and the individuals they serve stay protected.

Today, Plan to Protect® has helped to create safe environments for thousands of vulnerable sector individuals from over 7,500 organizations with the help of over 2000 trainers. Our membership database is constantly growing, both in Canada and across the globe. In addition, our excellent training modules provide our members with up-to-date, specialized, and ongoing support.

It doesn’t matter how large or small your organization is. If you deal with the vulnerable sector, it is absolutely imperative to have a solid plan in place to protect the people around you.

Plan to Protect® can help! 


*In 2000, many insurance companies began to exclude abuse from their insurance coverage. However, if an organization meets insurance company requirements, demonstrating they are adhering to a high standard of protection, they will remove the exclusion clause and provide the abuse coverage.


"I have really appreciated being able to call and ask questions. I have found it easy to discuss our situation even when difficult and know that it will be handled professionally. Being connected with you makes me feel more confident and knowledgeable regarding protecting children, using common sense, what the law requires etc. I have felt supported and that means a lot when you are responsible for other people's children."
