Developed in partnership with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, Smart Social is intended to help youth stay safe online and be smart on social media.
With our increasing use of tech, including smartphones and social media, maintaining well-being in our digital world is more important than ever. That’s why we have partnered with Family Channel and invite you and your family to take the TELUS Wise® 24-Hour Tech-Free Challenge and disconnect from tech for a day.
You may be relieved to learn that fewer youth take and send sexts (nude or semi-nude photos) than you may think. However, almost half of youth who have sent a sext say that the recipient then shared that image with other people. Created in partnership with MediaSmarts, this campaign aims to end the culture of forwarding intimate images of other people.
Did you know cyberbullying affects one million kids every month in Canada? This campaign helps drive change with the TELUS Wise Digital Pledge, while raising funds for #EndBullying programs across Canada.
We partnered with Degrassi, Backstage and Next Step for digital safety advice.
