Chief Charles Bordeleau, Ottawa Police Service
"On behalf of the Ottawa Police Service, I am pleased to provide support for the renewed endorsement by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) of the TELUS Wise program. In today's digital world, the need for easily accessible programming aimed at educating and keeping people safe online is growing. I am very happy to lend my name in support of these efforts and commend TELUS for the important work they are doing to ensure Canadians are safe online."
Parent, educator, and mental health and online safety advocate
"My daughter's name is Amanda Todd and she has a tragic story behind her name. It is hoped that her story is one that opens up discussions in families about Internet safety and how to understand and learn more about how to safeguard yourself and your kids. It is my feeling that telecommunications companies play a huge role in the responsibilities of education and knowledge for both parents and youth about what they do online and off. Using e-technology with safety and awareness is one of the most important things that can be learned today. The issues that arise can be prevented. As a customer of TELUS products for over two decades, I commend you for your efforts."
"There are so many skills kids need today for their online activities, such as protecting their privacy, staying safe and being ethical. TELUS Wise is a great tool to help kids learn and practice these skills and MediaSmarts is proud to be a partner in this important initiative."
Chief Commissioner and Chair of the Scouts Canada Board of Governors
"The safety of our members is Scouts Canada’s top priority: this includes providing great safe Scouting programs and equipping youth to be safe in their daily lives. That is why Scouts Canada was so pleased to team-up with TELUS to offer TELUS Wise workshops for our volunteers during our recent National Scout Jamboree. These workshops provided volunteers with the knowledge required to share tips for internet and smartphone safety with our youth members. Scouts Canada looks forward to opportunities to collaborate with TELUS in the near future."

"Very comprehensive, easy to follow and relevant presentation. I am an 'unaware' parent when it comes to social media and apps so this was extremely valuable information."
Kingston Police, Kingston, ON.
"I just had an opportunity to present the TELUS Wise workshop and wanted to pass on that the presentation is amazing. It is laid out perfectly and the format and style of the content really got the kids' attention. In comparison to previous presentations with Cyber Safety being the focal point, the TELUS Wise workshop was fun for the kids and it was the most engaged audience that I have seen over my 2 years as a School Resource Officer."

"This workshop was a tremendous public service for parents/guardians! Thank you!!! Everything was extremely valuable!"
