Welcome to the MediaSmarts’ website, home to one of the world's most comprehensive collections of digital and media literacy resources. This section is intended to introduce you to our organization and our work.
MediaSmarts is a Canadian not-for-profit charitable organization for digital and media literacy. Our vision is that children and youth have the critical thinking skills to engage with media as active and informed digital citizens.
MediaSmarts has been developing digital and media literacy programs and resources for Canadian homes, schools and communities since 1996. Through our work we support adults with information and tools so they can help children and teens develop the critical thinking skills they need for interacting with the media they love.
MediaSmarts is governed by an elected, volunteer Board of Directors, which includes representatives of leading media companies and stakeholder sectors, including education, libraries, and community and youth-serving organizations.
MediaSmarts is privileged to have the support of many dedicated companies and organizations who believe in our mission and share our commitment to helping children and teens become media smart. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the companies and organizations who are supporting our work.
