The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a charitable organization dedicated to the personal safety of all children. The CCCP operates Cybertip.ca, Canada's tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children. Recently, they have seen a marked increase in reports from youth ranging in age from 12 to 17. A large percentage of the reports made by teens are related to sexual images/videos being created and distributed via the internet and/or electronic devices, sometimes as a form of bullying. Their site, NeedHelpNow.ca, helps youth take the steps they need to remove innappropriate pictures from the Internet, gives youth tips on getting help when they need it and tells youth how to cope with a difficult online situation. Curriculum is being developed for grades 8 and 10 that addresses cyberbullying and online exploitation and can be accessed through contact@protectchildren.ca.
