Canada Safer Internet Day Committee - Canadian Centre for Child Protection
About our SID activities
Every February on Safer Internet Day (SID), organizations around the world join forces to help make the online world a safer place for young people. On SID 2023, the 20th year of this campaign, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) is calling on governments to pass regulations requiring industry to protect children online as they do offline. Technology companies cannot continue to operate platforms that lack age verification and allow unknown adults to access children in unsupervised spaces. We cannot continue to offload this responsibility solely on the shoulders of parents.
Until governments hold technology companies accountable and demand protections that keep unknown adults from intersecting with children in unsupervised online spaces, parents are the front line of defence against this threat.
What we are doing to support the SID 2023 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
Recognizing that everyone has a role to play in keeping kids safe online, we have a variety of resources available for children and teens, parents, educators, and others. Please see the links below.
What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…
Marking 20 years of SID, C3P is drawing attention to an 815 per cent increase in online luring reports to Cybertip.ca over the last five years. Cybertip.ca can help parents start a conversation with their teens about online luring, and how to be safe online.
The Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) is a charity dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Our goal is to reduce the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and prevent child victimization through a number of programs, services, and resources for Canadian families, educators, child-serving organizations, law enforcement, and other parties.
