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.

The Importance of Bullying Prevention and Awareness Week

Next week is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, and we’re encouraging students, school staff, and caregivers to learn more about bullying and its effects by posting resources on our blog all week.

Acknowledging Victimized Children's Strengths

We often see stories of victimized children "standing up" to bullying profiled in the news. These actions are certainly brave and can call attention to the bullying problem and perhaps even promote change. But not all expressions of power by victimized children are so obvious.

What is the link between bullying and weight?

Prior research suggests that young people who are overweight are more likely to be bullied than those who are not overweight, however, because of a number of flaws in that research, we might not be getting the full picture.

Bullying: More than just Social Pain

Anyone who has witnessed or been subjected to bullying can attest to the fact that bullying is a destructive social experience. Beyond that, science tells us that it also has damaging effects on our physiological health that can last beyond childhood.
