In Trouble with the Law: Youth Rights
Do you know your rights? Even if you have never been involved in a crime or accused of a crime, it is important for you to know your rights. This booklet can help explain the rights for 12-17 year olds under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Consequences of a Youth Record
A youth record sets out a young person’s involvement in Canada’s youth justice system. It can stay with a young person and cause problems for many years, even after the youth becomes an adult. This booklet will answer some common questions about youth records, what information they hold, and who has access to them. It will also explore some possible consequences and things you should know about making sure your youth record is closed.
