Government of New Brunswick

 Thank you for your input. The consultation period is now closed.


The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour is leading a review of employment protections for young workers, in light of:

  • Canada’s ratification of the International Labour Organization’s Convention 138 (Minimum Age) in June 2016; and
  • The release of the Strategy for the Prevention of Harm to Children and Youth in New Brunswick in November 2015.

This consultation seeks the views of New Brunswickers on proposals for enhancing employment protections for persons under the age of eighteen.

We value your input.

All New Brunswickers are welcome to submit comments and suggestions in response to the discussion paper by email, fax or mail by October 7, 2016.
