Helping New Brunswickers Know the Law

What's New

New Quiz for Youth

To help celebrate law day on April 14, 2011, Public Legal Education and Information Service has created a quiz for youth. 

Law Day is a national event celebrating the anniversary of the Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  Law Day is an initiative of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) and was first held in Canada in 1983.  The purpose is to educate and inform the public about the role and importance of the law. Many people, especially youth, have a limited knowledge about the law and how the legal system works. Law Day is an opportunity to educate and empower the public generally.

The “youth quiz” features many common questions that youth ask about their rights.  For example, when does a youth have the right to vote, to consent to medical treatment or get married?  We have called the quiz:  How Old Do I Have To Be in New Brunswick? It offers a fun and simple way to engage youth about the law.  To order copies of the quiz for your law day activities, call 506-453-5369….or feel free to download it from the PLEIS-NB website.
