An aim of this study is to determine rates of cyber bullying in three major Canadian cities: including Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal. Considering that the rates of school bullying vary according to grade, our second objective is to compare rates of cyber bullying across grades. We will obtain perspectives of children, parents and teachers and will examine similarities and differences in child and parent reports of children’s experiences of cyber bullying.
