Fredericton (GNB) - The provincial government is launching a new Cyber Safety website featuring
resources aimed at preventing internet child exploitation. The launch is in conjunction with stakeholder
workshops being held this week in Moncton and Bathurst.
The website provides information for parents, youth and children about the threats that exist online as well
as tips on how to prevent internet child exploitation. The site also features two videos that were developed
to raise awareness about the potential dangers.
"Internet child exploitation is a global problem and New Brunswick is not immune to this type of crime,"
said Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Stephen Horsman. "Our government is proud of the work
being done by the Internet Child Exploitation task force which was created to help protect children and
families in New Brunswick."
The Department of Public Safety led the task force in its development of a comprehensive Internet Child
Exploitation Strategic Framework.
The workshops this week are intended to provide stakeholders, such as teachers, social workers and police
officers, with practical tools and the latest information available to address the issue.
