“Cyberbullying is a serious issue that affects 42 per cent of Canadian youth on a monthly basis ,” says Nimmi Kanji, Director, TELUS WISE.
TELUS is also Canada's largest healthcare IT provider, and TELUS International delivers business process solutions around the globe.
In support of our philosophy to give where we live, TELUS, our team members and retirees have contributed over 2 million to charitable and not-for-profit organizations and volunteered more than 7.7 million hours of service to local communities since 2000.
Created in 2005 by President and CEO Darren Entwistle, TELUS’ 12 Canadian community boards and 5 International boards have led the Company’s support of grassroots charities and have contributed more than million in support of 5,595 local charitable projects, enriching the lives of more than 2 million children and youth, annually.
The rallies, to be hosted with recording artist Scott Helman and comedian Jackie Pirico, were developed in partnership with Media Smarts and aim to help youth avoid situations that could lead to or exacerbate cyberbullying.
TELUS WISE has found that youth are motivated to intervene when they witness cyberbullying, but would be more likely to do so if adults provided better guidance on managing interventions.
