Canadian Bar Association Child Rights Toolkit

The Canadian Bar Association has developed a Child Rights Toolkit "for professionals working in legal and administrative decision-making who want to better understand and implement a child rights based approach in practice and strengthen their advocacy for children."

There are four topics covered:
  • Fundamentals: where child rights come from, what they are, who is responsible and the status of child rights in Canada
  • The System: Cross-Cutting Themes: independent human rights institutions and child rights impact assessments
  • The Child: Cross-Cutting Themes: Charter rights, best interests of the child, child participation, legal representation and freedom from all forms of violence.
  • Legal Areas: information and law in specific legal domains such as child protection, family law, youth criminal justice, and immigration
