Cyber bullying is a common occurrence among middle school and high school students throughout the country. Cyberbullying involves the use of information technology like computers, cell phones, or social media to threaten, harass, or humiliate another individual. Some teens refer to cyberbullying as hating, trolling, or drama. Cyberbullying charges can result in significant penalties and punishments for the accused. If you have been a victim of cyberbullying, you should immediately consult with our lawyers.

Types of Cyber Bullying

Cyberbullying does not necessarily have to involve threats of physical violence. In fact, social media posts or shared images meant to humiliate or damage the reputation of a person can be considered an act of cyberbullying. Publicizing personal or confidential information online or through other technological means also constitutes cyber bullying.

Examples of cyber bullying include:

  • Posting embarrassing or offensive videos of someone online
  • Using email or text messages to threaten someone
  • Hacking a person’s social media account and making derogatory or embarrassing posts
  • Using a cell phone to transmit offensive, personal, or confidential information about someone
  • Posing as someone else online for the purpose of doing harm
  • Using technology to encourage or pressure others to exclude someone from an online or offline community or group

Possible Charges for Cyberbullying

Depending on the circumstances and frequency of the cyberbullying, the person responsible for the bullying can be charged with the following offences:

  • Child Pornography
  • Criminal Harassment
  • Counselling Suicide
  • Defamatory Libel
  • Extortion
  • False Messages
  • Identity Fraud
  • Incitement of Hatred
  • Intimidation
  • Mischief
  • Unauthorized Use of a Computer
  • Uttering Threats

Because of the increase of online bullying cases, some provinces have introduced legislation to combat the growing issue. Examples of cyberbullying legislation include:

  • Alberta’s Education Act
  • Manitoba’s The Cyberbullying Prevention Act
  • New Brunswick’sEducation Act
  • Ontario’sEducation Act
  • Quebec’sAct to Prevent and Stop Bullying and Violence in Schools
