It’s World Teacher Day – the day that we celebrate those who spend their days nurturing minds and hearts in the communities that we share.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada thanks you for your long days, your hard work, but most of all, your enthusiasm.

To support your efforts, we’ve developed free educational resources to help you address the important issue of privacy with your students. These resources include:

  • a presentation for students in grades 9 to 12* about online privacy and ways they can protect their online reputations;
  • a video contest for your school to host, where 12- to 18-year-old students create short videos telling us what they think about privacy; and
  • lesson plans developed by the Media Awareness Network (MNet), which will enable you to engage students in thinking about and discussing privacy issues.

For more information, visit our youth website at

*Presentations for grades 7 and 8 and grades 4 to 6 will be available at the same link later this year.
