Pink Shirt Day 2016

Feb 24, 2016

Show your support for Pink Shirt Day and wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying.

Bullying can happen to anyone. We need to do what we can to take a stand.

What is Bullying?

Bullying can take many forms, but it typically involves someone doing or saying things to have power over another person. It happens every day across Canada in schools, malls, on cellphones and on the Internet.

What Can We Do to Stop Bullying?

Take part in Pink Shirt Day and let's learn what we can do to stop bullying in our schools, sports groups and communities together. The goal is to have the first call be the right call when it comes to children, youth and parents who are experiencing bullying and in need of help.
