Together Against Online Crime

The objective of this project is to reduce on-line crimes by educating the community to protect them against such crimes and ensuring individuals are safe when reporting them. Our strategy for this project involves conducting public awareness campaigns and holding 20 recorded educational online awareness sessions and promoting them among London and Middlesex communities to address the following on-line crimes:
• Hate crimes
• Human trafficking
• Online Fraud.

This campaign will cover the legal aspects of the online crimes mentioned (including the substantive and mental elements to commit the crime in a very simple and understandable language for the public). Other information that will be covered includes the following:
• How to identify the crimes
• How to report such crimes
• What are the procedures that ensure the safety of whistleblowers
• What resources are available for the public
• Explain several examples of the hate crimes
• Explain several examples of online human trafficking
• Explain several examples of new online fraud methods

The target groups for this project are:
• Newcomers to Canada, including refugees and temporary residents
• Students
• Minority and ethnic groups
• Fraud victims
• Human trafficking victims
• Victims of anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, ageism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, gender-based, and other forms of discrimination victims in the community
• Our sessions will also be available to the general public.
