    Public Safety Canada Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE) Campaign

    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 


    Public Safety Canada Cyberbullying Campaign

    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).

    Principal Work-life Balance and Well-being Matters

    Format: Downloadable Document

    In November 2016, delegates from over 32 school leader associations (SLAs) from across the globe participated in the third Annual International Symposium on the Role of Professional Associations for School Leaders held in Toronto, Ontario. The symposium explored research on work intensification, generational theory and its influence on principal work and aspirations, and work-life balance and well- being. 

    This White Paper draws on the work of the symposium and the wider evidence base to argue that we currently face a crisis in principal well-being on a global scale that, without urgent policy and practice intervention, will impact school- and system-level outcomes for generations.
