screenshot coverBullying (also known as harassment) happens when a person or a group of people repeatedly hurts, threatens, or scares a peer. 

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

bric screenshotThis document is part of a toolkit developed by the Saskatoon Council on Aging during their project Building Respectful, Inclusive Communities (BRIC). BRIC led to the creation of a guide on senior-to-senior bullying and of a Train-the-trainer program through which older adult volunteers hold presentations for other older adults living in congregate housing. The project also offers ongoing support to the older adults trained to give presentations.
