Young Canadians in a Wired World - Phase II PDF Print

Young Canadians in a Wired World - Phase II
Student Survey, November 2005
By: Media Awareness Network (Valerie Steeves)


Media Awareness Network has unveiled the latest findings from the Young Canadians in a Wired World – Phase II (YCWW II) national research project – the most comprehensive and wide-ranging survey of its kind in Canada. Building on baseline research conducted in 2001, YCWW II looks at the online behaviours, attitudes, and opinions of more than 5,200 children and youth from grades 4 to 11, in every province and territory across the country.

The YCWW II research reveals that an astonishing 94 percent of young people access the Internet from home, with students as early as Grade 4 beginning to rely on the Internet to explore social roles, stay connected with friends and develop their social networks.

While young people’s online experiences are generally positive, Phase II findings confirm that hazards still exist for young people online, but that an increase in parental involvement has positive impacts.

The Phase II research project looks into current trends and provides a call to action for parents, educators and other working with youth to address the challenges and rich opportunities afforded by media to its youngest users.
