The Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) has provided a new online resource re: Children and Young Persons’ Rights. The Rights Resource is intended to support children and youth in understanding their rights in child-friendly language and direct them to someone they can talk to if they have questions. It also acts as a resource for parents, caregivers and staff to support and understand the rights of children and young persons.
