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 will develop the following resources about sexting and cyberbullying:

  • A plain language legal publication
  • Short educational videos
  • An online toolkit
  • A workshop tailored for youth aged 12-18

All information will be based on the Criminal Code and Youth Criminal Justice Act provisions. The project will have 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 produced will also include information about healthy relationship building and decision-making skills.
