Community Living BC (CLBC) recognizes that individuals with developmental disabilities are a part of the growing community of online users, especially through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and that the Internet can be an unsafe place for people; particularly those who are more vulnerable.
With this in mind, CLBC has launched icanbesafeonline.com, Canada’s first website dedicated to educating adults with developmental disabilities and their families on how to use the Internet safely.
Icanbesafeonline.com is a fun and easy to use website that has safety tips, videos, stories, quizzes and a blog to help educate, empower, and equip people with the basic safety information they need so they can be safer when online. The website also has a section specifically for families so they can learn what risks may exist when online and what they can do to make sure that the people they care about are being safe when using the Internet.
