WINNIPEG, MB: The Canadian Centre for Child Protection was honoured to be recognized by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) for partnering with Canada’s wireless industry to serve Canadian families and better protect children.
Nominated by Manitoba Telecom Services Inc. (MTS), the Canadian Centre was one of five Manitoba-based organizations presented with the CWTA’s Connected to the Community Award Wednesday evening during a reception held at The Fairmont Winnipeg.
“This award exemplifies how an agency like ours can use wireless technology and work together with leading wireless industry members to improve safety resources for Canadians,” says Lianna McDonald, Executive Director at the Canadian Centre, “We’re grateful to MTS for the nomination – we know that no one entity can tackle all the issues youth and children face online and we look forward to continuing our work together.”
“The CWTA and its members have long been partnering with the Centre on a variety of projects, and I have had the opportunity to see first-hand how valuable its work is,” says Bernard Lord, CWTA President and CEO. “I know all of us appreciate the Centre’s tireless efforts to keep Canada’s children safe in our ever-evolving society.”
