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.
