Pink Shirt Day in Canada is celebrated on the last Wednesday in February each year.
Bullying is a big problem in schools, workplaces, and online spaces. So on Pink Shirt Day, wear something pink to symbolize that we don’t tolerate bullying. A message that should be remembered year long!
Pink Shirt Day is a great day to have deep conversations with our children and chat about bullying and why it is so prevalent; encourage them to stand up against it and be part of the change.
If you are a victim of bullying, you are not alone! Help and support are available. Below I have put together a list of anti-bullying resources, with some helpful information if you are experiencing bullying or want to help.

Thanks for sharing all these great resources for a very important topic.
Such an important topic and a great list of resources as well.
This is so important because many childhood bullies turn into adult bullies and we must help children now.
That is such an important topic.
I’m so grateful that bullying is spoken so openly and freely at schools. We certainly have come a long way over the years.
Great list of resources, thank you for sharing!
