The Bill also establishes the COVID-19 Recovery Youth Secretariat, to assist with the development, revision and implementation of the Action Plan and review legislation and regulations to determine the potential effects on the well-being of children, youth and youth adults.
The Bill also enshrines accountability, by appointing a new standing committee to review the development and implementation of the Action Plan every two years, review data and research conducted by the Secretariat, and report to the Legislative Assembly.
The sooner we act, the sooner we can help the next generation emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.
