Are you concerned about the growing challenge of cyberbullying and cyberviolence in our digital age?

Join us at our free online Symposium on Navigating Cyberbullying and Cyberviolence, an event to support school leaders as they work to prevent, address and combat harmful online experiences. School leaders and community partners from across the province come together to share, listen and learn to support students!

Healthy Relationships in a Digital World is a project designed to provide principals and vice-principals with leadership resources, strategies and networks, to navigate, prevent and respond to cyberbullying and cyberviolence in schools through an anti-oppressive lens.

We've designed a specialized virtual program that you won’t want to miss! 

School, system and community leaders and educators will explore effective strategies for preventing and responding to cyberbullying incidents. Through informative presentations, you will gain valuable insights into the latest trends, tools and resources to create a safer digital environment for students.

Participants will

  • explore strategies to effectively keep students connected with healthy online relationships by engaging with principals, vice-principals and community partners

  • access and discuss leadership resources in the Healthy Relationships Toolkit 

  • investigate the impact of artificial intelligence on cyberbullying and cyberviolence 

  • learn directly from students and

  • build knowledge from community partners such as Victim Services Toronto and police services.

Together, let's equip ourselves with the knowledge and skills needed to foster a culture of kindness, resilience and responsible online behaviour. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the solution!

Important Planning Update

Thank you for your interest in the Healthy Relationships in a Digital World Symposium. As you may be aware, this was originally advertised as a hybrid event; however, our team made the decision to cancel the onsite format for this event due to low enrollment. This decision was made after careful consideration and evaluation of registration. Despite our best efforts and diligent planning, the onsite format of the Symposium did not receive the level of enrollment necessary to ensure a successful and meaningful event for all participants involved.

There has been significant interest in the online format for this event, so we remain committed to offering the Symposium virtually to give those interested the opportunity to learn and engage.

We apologize for any disruption to your plans. Our primary goal has always been to provide an enriching and valuable experience for all participants.

We hope you can join us online on May 14 to learn together on this important topic!
