Office of the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth
Reports directly to the Legislature and provides an independent voice for children and youth, including children with special needs and First Nations children.

The Provincial Advocate may identify systemic problems involving children, conduct reviews and provide education and advice on the issue of advocacy and the rights of children. The Office is guided by the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and has a strong commitment to youth involvement.
