Children's Rights in Canada - Family Life in Canada

Children’s rights are human rights, and it’s important for every Canadian and every newcomer to understand what those rights are. When parents model behaviour that respects child and human rights, children feel that their needs are met, that they are valued and that they can thrive. How do children’s rights apply in Canada? What’s the difference between a want and a right?

This video answers these questions and more to help newcomer families adjust to their new life in Canada. This video is part of the Family Life in Canada resource series. The series aims to help newcomers adjust to life in Canada and encourages them to access information, programs, services and resources in their community.
