The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a charitable organization dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Their goal is to reduce child victimization by providing programs and services to Canadians.
As technology has evolved over the years, the Canadian Centre, has guided parents first through basic cell phone and internet safety, and then smartphone safety with an online component. Now that the internet is woven so seamlessly into our lives, they are moving to helping parents keep children and youth safe in the online world – regardless of what technology they’re using.
ProtectKidsOnline.ca regularly gleans information from Cybertip.ca to keep parents informed about age-specific online interests of young people and the risks they may encounter while engaging in those activities – for example, while playing on gaming apps – and providing parents with proactive strategies for making their child’s online experiences safer.
