Webcast: Empowering a New Generation of Digital Citizens

To mark Data Privacy Day on January 28, 2022, Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner, Patricia Kosseim, hosted a free online webcast. It focussed on how best to champion the privacy and access rights of Ontario's children and youth, by promoting their digital literacy and digital rights, while holding institutions accountable for protecting the children and youth they serve.


Social Smarts: Nothing Personal!

A new graphic novel for youth... and a discussion guide for educators

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has developed a new graphic novel for youth aged 8-10 called Social Smarts: Nothing Personal!

A talking smartphone serves as a youth’s guide through the sometimes tricky online world. Youth can read the novel on their own to pick up some valuable info about how to stay safe online and protect their privacy, and the privacy of others. As well, the OPC has developed a discussion guide that educators can use to generate conversation about the novel and learning.

In addition, the OPC has created a blog to help parents and guardians lead a ‘family tech talk’ with youth, pointing to tools and ideas located on the OPC website.
