  • Do you know what the different types of bullying are?

  • Do you know the difference between bullying and harassment?

  • Do you know how often bullying happens in schools across Canada?

  • Are you teaching students about cyber safety?

  • Do you have clear policies and guidelines outlined to help adults intervene effectively with incidents of disrespectful behaviour including bullying and harassment?

  • Are you talking about issues of bullying and harassment in classes and assemblies? Are you providing easily accessible, age-appropriate information?

  • Are you addressing the issue of children and youth as bystanders?
