Dear Ms Laliberté,
Thank you for your email in which you provide information about your project and websites to help bullying victims and raise awareness among their bullies. Your websites Le respect mutual and Mutual Respect, as well as your videos clearly show your commitment to addressing bullying. I am pleased to respond on behalf of the Ministry of Education.
The government’s top priority is to promote a safe, inclusive and supportive school environment for every student in this province. It is vital that parents, guardians, students, and all those working in our schools are confident with the measures in place to protect children and youth from harm. As school boards in Ontario are independent organizations, each school board is responsible for the daily operational matters in its schools, including determining which resources or programs to implement to support student achievement and well-being.
I would encourage you to reach out to school boards directly to share your websites and videos. Thank you for taking the time to write and share your work with us.
Acting Director Safe and Healthy Schools Branch
