Reports

Technology-Facilitated Gender-Based Violence Among Young People: Synthesizing the Research to Promote Digital Safety in Canada (available in English and French)

This is the final report for our SSHRC gender-based violence synthesis grant. We hope this report will help inform the Canadian conversation on technology-facilitated gender-based violence by revealing what future research contributions will be of most significance and by informing those creating the policies and frontline supports that will impact the next generation.

Technology-Facilitated Sexual Violence in Canadian Educational Curricula, Policies, and Legislation

Technology-facilitated sexual violence (TFSV) is on the rise among Canada’s youth. It is important to understand how secondary schools educate students about TFSV and the steps they take to address TFSV. We conducted an analysis of educational curricula, policies, legislation, and related documents from Canada’s thirteen provinces and territories to understand how secondary schools respond to TFSV. We found that TFSV is inconsistently addressed, and as such, there is a need for more robust curricula, policies, and legislation.
