A detailed list of reportable incidents can be found in Schedule H of the Child Care Licensing Regulation and Schedule D of the Residential Care Regulation.

Facilities must comply with the Section 52 of the Child Care Licensing Regulation and the Residential Care Regulations when it comes to notification of harmful actions not permitted. Section 55 of the Child Care Licensing Regulation and Section 76 & 77 of the Residential Care Regulation; set out requirements for notification of illness, injury and reportable incidents in licensed care facilities.
