Healthy Relationships: Navigating Cyberviolence and Cyberbullying 



Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario (CPCO), the Ontario Principals’ Council (OPC), l’Association des directions et directions adjointes des écoles franco-ontariennes (ADFO), and Victim Services Toronto (VST) have been working together to develop a system-wide response strategy to cyberviolence and cyberbullying.

The three associations and partners, with funding provided by the Ministry of Education, worked as a team to design and develop a tool for Principals and Vice-Principals to use when planning for and dealing with incidents of cyberviolence and cyberbullying in schools. These incidences include internet luring, harassment, sexual harassment, bullying, stalking, threats of violence and sexual violence using social media.

This Proactive and Reactive Placemat Tool was pilot tested by Principals and Vice-Principals in the Toronto area, refined, and then shared with four school boards in North, East and West areas of Ontario.

The Placemat Tool has been finalized and rolled out across all 72 boards in Ontario.
