Did you know that reducing the spread of misinformation during a pandemic by just 10% will reduce the severity of the outbreak?

MediaSmarts has just launched the Check First. Share After campaign to encourage Canadians to check the source of info about COVID-19 before sharing it.

What can you do?

  • Share responsibly. Check first, share after.
  • Call out false content when you see it.
  • Help educate others about the dangers of misinformation.

Visit the campaign website for answers to:

  • Why does passing along bad information matter?
  • What can I trust?
  • What should I do if I see false info?
  • Why does expert advice change?

Also on the website is a search engine that limits its findings to trusted expert sources and links to more information for a deeper dive.
