Bill C-356

If you have any questions or comments regarding the accessibility of this publication, please contact us at



This enactment amends the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act to add a definition of ``child'' to the section that relates to children who testify being accompanied by parents.

This ensures that the Act will be interpreted consistently with the definition of ``child'' proposed by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a person who is less than eighteen years old.
