CHILDREN AND YOUTH RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
WHAT ARE THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE UNDER THE LAW?
Children and youth have many rights under the law, including the right to be safe and feel safe, to be treated with affection, to be educated and to be protected against abuse and neglect and the threat of harm. In Manitoba, children are protected and families supported by a law called The Child and Family Services Act.
