About Coalition

Established in spring 2020, the Coalition to Combat Online Hate comprises a diverse array of communities and organizations representing those who have experienced online vitriol firsthand. We have come together with a purpose: to protect marginalized communities – and all Canadians – from online hate.

In April 2021, key industry players, community representatives and thought-leaders came together at the Action Summit to Combat Online Hate organized by the Canadian Coalition to Combat Online Hate to exchange information and develop guiding principles for actions to tackle online hate.

As a follow-up to the Summit, the Coalition has developed this online resource centre for youth, parents, educators, and policymakers, providing the strategic tools necessary to be effective in their efforts to address and combat online hate.

The goal of this resource centre is to bring awareness to all types of online hate and direct Canadians to educational and training materials that will help them take action when they encounter hate online. By working together, we can make the communities we are building online – and, by extension, the communities we inhabit offline – safer places for all Canadians.

In addition to the coalition members, we are grateful for the expertise and guidance of Media Smarts and Project Someone in developing this website.
