Free educational resources and workshops

It will take a team effort to #EndBullying. That's why we created The Code.

To help #EndBullying, Hockey Canada and TELUS have teamed up to create The Code for the hockey community. An extension of the TELUS Wise program, The Code offers free customized educational tools, resources and workshops to help hockey fans, players and families navigate digital spaces safely and respectfully.

There are three parts to The Code:

Jordan Eberle - Team Canada - THE CODE

The Code Pledge

The Code is a pledge that every player, fan, coach, parent, official, volunteer or administrator can make to be a good digital citizen and a great teammate.

The Code Playbook

The Code Playbook is a free guidebook for hockey players, parents and coaches on how to be a good digital citizen and a great teammate.

Developed in partnership with the TELUS Wise team, Internet safety experts at MediaSmarts, and the hockey leaders at Hockey Canada, The Code Playbook is filled with great tips on how to have fun at the rink and stay safe online.

The Code Workshops

TELUS has partnered with Hockey Canada to create free TELUS Wise Workshops to teach hockey parents, coaches, players and all individuals how to stay safe in our digital world.

Adult workshop topics include how to:

  • Protect your family’s online security, privacy and reputation
  • Use technology responsibly
  • Rise above cyberbullying, with special attention to possible scenarios experienced by hockey families

Impactful, engaging, and informative, this workshop is an off-ice clinic for parents, coaches, team administrators, volunteers and all interested adults. This workshop is designed to help the hockey community navigate the complex and quickly-changing digital world.

To improve accessibility to The Code Adult Workshop for the hockey community, the adult workshop is now available online. This workshop can be completed individually at home, or the hockey organization can share offer workshops in a classroom setting for coaches, parents and volunteer.

Youth workshop topics include:

  • What is your digital footprint
  • Power of online and think before you post
  • Standing up to cyberbullying


This off-ice workshop is designed to help young hockey players understand the impact of their digital footprint and that behaviours should not differ from on the ice to online.

Note: Youth workshops are currently only being delivered through Hockey Canada and the provincial organizations.
