CASSA is the Canadian organization of school system leaders that promotes and supports quality education for the success of each student.
The OCSE campaign targets youth in Canada aged 10-17, as well as parents and caregivers of youth aged 5-17. The campaign aims to increase the target audiences’ awareness levels of online child sexual exploitation by increasing public and parental understanding that children (persons under 18) who engage in sexting could be at risk of OCSE; and increasing awareness that OCSE could be happening in your own backyard or neighbourhood – it is not something that happens “somewhere else”.
The new OCSE website can be found here: Canada.ca/child-exploitation.
On this site, you can find featured information and resources for youth, caregivers and educators. The site also includes “Teacher’s Toolkits” under our Resources for Educators page. These toolkits are a series of resources meant to help guide teachers in speaking to caregivers and youth of different ages on the various aspects of OCSE. The youth toolkits are tailored to different youth age segments (10-12, 13-14 and 15-17). The caregiver toolkits are also tailored according to these youth age segments, however they include resources for caregivers of youth under 10 as well. Products within each toolkit include fact sheets, booklets, presentations, posters
The Cyberbullying campaign targets youth in Canada aged 12-17, as well as parents, caregivers and educators of youth aged 6-17. The campaign aims to increase awareness of where youth and caregivers can get the help they need to deal with cyberbullying. In addition, the campaign will try to empower young people to take action to protect themselves and others from cyberbullying.
The new Cyberbullying website can be found here: Canada.ca/cyberbullying.
On this site, you will also find resources for youth, teachers and caregivers. Products on the site include fact sheets and booklets that teachers can use in classrooms for youth and caregivers, broken down by youth age group (6-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-17).
