COPA provides a wide range of multimedia educational resources, training, professional development, network building and consultation throughout the province in response to requests from schools, boards and communities.
COPA’s unique approach is based on individual and collective empowerment and is supported by an analysis based on the principles of equity and inclusion to effect positive social change. COPA works to recognize human rights, especially those of children and other marginalized groups in our society.
Prevention ProgramsCOPA offers a range of programs to prevent violence and promote equity and inclusion in schools and school boards across Ontario. Working with young people of all ages, educators, school staff, and parents and families, COPA strives to engage the whole school community in creating and enhancing efforts to empower children and youth.
