Child and Youth Charter

On Nov. 20, 2009, the Child, Youth and Family Services Coalition of Simcoe County launched the County’s first Child and Youth Charter, documenting basic rights for young people and responsibilities for those who care for them.

Children and youth joined Coalition members and government representatives at the Simcoe County Administration Centre on Nov. 20 to proclaim the Charter in English, French and Ojibway. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child affirms that all levels of government have a duty to help families fulfill their responsibilities and protect the rights of children.
