  • NCIC Canada

    The US apparently shares the NCIC database with Canada. If someone logged in the database as a Missing Child (runaway) were to attempt to cross the border, would Canada let them through?
    If the answer is unknown to you, then I have another question. Is Canadian Border Control Authorized to detain US citizens (specifically runaways)?

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. So, we are unable to tell you what Canadian Border Control is and isn't authorized to do. Additionally, due to the COVID-19 crisis, international borders may or may not be open.

    It may be a good idea to reach out to as they are a Canadian organization and may be able to better answer your questions.

    Stay safe,
