This November 2-6, students, educators, parents and community organizations across the country will join MediaSmarts and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) in marking Canada’s 10th annual Media Literacy Week (#medlitweek).
Each year, hundreds of collaborators and thousands of participants from across Canada and internationally celebrate the week and help raise awareness of the importance of media literacy and digital literacy in the education of children and youth.
The official theme of Media Literacy Week 2015 is Respect in a Digital World, encouraging young people to be upstanding digital citizens by acting responsibly and ethically in their online environments by respecting themselves, others and the spaces they’re in.
Our website is packed with ideas and resources to help you celebrate whether it’s by helping to promote the week through your networks to hosting your own activities – everything from small classroom or community-based projects to large-scale public events.

The week wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We’re pleased to welcome back long-time supporters Bell and YouTube as Gold Sponsors. This year, we also welcome the Northwest Territories Teachers’ Association as an Associate Sponsor.
