In and effort to make clear what the updated curriculum actually surrounds, this Ontario sexual education campaign was devised. Simple to follow, the short video follows a number of children who are inevitably curious about their bodies, how a healthy relationship works and more.

It also considers the controversy that the Ontario sexual education update has faced -- with some claiming that a more expansive range of coverage would encourage children and teens to become more promiscuous. Broadcast in a variety of different languages, this Ontario sexual education campaign aims to prove to those against the update that the questions students have can't simply be ignored. As this curriculum hasn't been updated since 1998, past teachings have been limited, noninclusive and not nearly progressive enough for today's Canadian society.
