Sexting, Cyberbullying and the Criminal Code

Sexting, Cyberbullying & the Criminal Code is a two-year project funded by Public Safety Canada, under the Strengthening Community Readiness and Direct Intervention stream.

Community Legal Information developed the following resources about sexting and cyberbullying:

  • A plain language legal publication.
  • Short educational videos.
  • A workshop tailored for youth aged 12-14.

All information is based on the Criminal Code and Youth Criminal Justice Act provisions. The project had input from a youth advisory committee. The goal is to increase the public’s knowledge about the legal consequences of sexualized cyberviolence for victims, bystanders and perpetrators. The resources include information about healthy relationship building and decision-making skills.

Our publication Sexting and the Law is now available. Download here:
