Digital Toolkit

The Digital Toolkit was designed as a clear, concise response to the issues and challenges faced by youth content producers working on digital platforms.

Created by specialists in the production and distribution of content for the very youngest audiences, the kit pragmatically explores the ethical and legal questions — safety, moderation, online payment, advertising, marketing, personal information and more — that arise when operating a kids’ website or mobile app on the Canadian and international markets.

Each backgrounder also offers recommendations formulated by the editorial team and validated by the legal team to help producers adopt best practices in the field of youth digital media.
