Education Minister Nancy Allan and Lianna McDonald (right), executive director, Canadian Centre for Child Protection, announce programs to help combat cyberbullying.

Schools and parents will soon have new resources to target cyberbullying, Education Minister Nancy Allan said today.

"It's increasingly important to prepare students to be engaged in their communities in positive ways," Allan said in a statement. "The resources we will provide and develop through this partnership will empower youth to recognize cyberbullying, deal with its impacts and challenge this harmful behaviour."

Allan said the new program involves a partnership with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

It will include providing the Self/Peer Exploitation Resource Guide to assist schools in responding to incidents where teens have been negatively impacted by a sexual picture or video being shared by peers and a educational resources such as www.NeedHelpNow.ca in schools to support youth who may be cyberbullied.

Allan also said it includes teaching resources for students in Grades 8 to 10.

The province is also hosting the second annual Safe and Caring School Leadership Conference on cybersafety in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection next May.

Lianna McDonald, executive director, Canadian Centre for Child Protection said in the last few years, the issue of self/peer exploitation and cyberbullying has become a growing concern for parents and school personnel across Canada.
