moved for leave to introduce Bill C-430, an act to amend the Insurance Companies Act (definition of infant).
Madam Speaker, this is a bill to amend the Insurance Companies Act (definition of infant). Its purpose is to ensure that the term "infant" as it is seen in the context of dealing with issues in regard to insurance will be interpreted consistently with the
definition of child as proposed by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
As members know, under that convention country members have agreed to amend all of their legislation in order to ensure that they have a cohesive policy when dealing with children. This amendment will ensure that is the case.
