Bullying awareness and prevention activities have been traditionally aimed at younger generations, even though the behaviours occur across the life course. 

For Pink Shirt Day 2020, A&O: Support Services for Older Adults and the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse launched an anti-bullying campaign on social media to help raise awareness of bullying of older adults: #PinkShirtDayForAll. This factsheet was developed as part of the campaign. It summarizes:

  • the definition of bullying;
  • its causes;
  • its various impacts;
  • strategies for prevention and 
  • available services in Manitoba
