Racial Bullying and COVID-19

Strategies for Educators, Caregivers, and Youth to Help Prevent Racial Bullying

In his webinar Promoting Healthy Relationships and Preventing Racial Bullying, Samuel Kim, Queen’s University PhD candidate, examines racial bullying during the COVID-19 pandemic and how we can provide youth with evidence-based strategies to stand up to bullying. Here, his strategies for educators, parents, and youth are summarized.

COVID-19 Resource Hub

From supporting children's mental health to staying active and entertained, there's a wealth of information on COVID-19 to be found online. We've created a resource hub full of helpful links - find tips for talking to your children about the pandemic, how to work from home, and how to stay connected from a distance. Be sure to check back often as we regularly update the list with new resources.

How to Manage your Screen Time While Staying Home

In an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), schools and offices across the country have shut their doors. Canadians staying home and adjusting to physical distancing are finding themselves spending more time online, both to read the news and to connect with friends and family.


Bullying Prevention Policies in Canada: What Parents Should Know

Did you know that most provinces and territories have formal legislation or policy that addresses bullying? The exact nature of the policies or laws varies across the country, but many schools now provide clear, written guidelines on acceptable behaviours and outline steps on how bullying is handled when it takes place.

It can be tricky to find this information for your child’s school, so we’ve created a list of documents that may be helpful and where to find them. 

Resources and Activities for Youth, Educators, and Caregivers

As Bullying Awareness and Prevention week comes to a close, we invite you to review this week’s topics and the many resources provided for youth, educators, and caregivers.

Why Bullying Prevention Policy Matters

Bullying is a major problem for Canadian children and one we cannot ignore. As bullying rates in Canada remain higher than 2/3 of Western countries, impacting social relationships, well-being, and overall health, the importance of bullying prevention policy has never been stronger.


For most youth, the Internet is all about connecting and socializing. And while most of these social interactions are positive, increasing numbers of kids are using the technology to intimidate and harass others – a phenomenon known as cyberbullying.

Bullying and the Brain

Recent research on the neurological impacts of bullying has increased our understanding of the mental and physical impacts of bullying. 

What is Bullying Awareness & Prevention Week?

November 17-23, 2019 is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, dedicated to helping promote safe schools and a positive learning environment.
