Canada is failing its youth. Canada ranked in the bottom third of developed countries when it comes to preventing bullying and victimization and near the bottom in the quality of the relationships youth reported with their parents and peers. To improve Canada’s support of youth, PREVNet (Promoting Relations and Eliminating Violence Network) is working with its National Youth Advisory Committee to co-create a “by youth for youth” public education campaign about the importance of healthy relationships. Let’s celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary by mobilizing and inspiring Canada’s future, its youth, to promote healthy relationships and create a caring and respectful Canada.
