The Juvenile Migrants Apprenticeship Act 1923 (52/1923) was 'An Act to establish a system of apprenticing juvenile assisted migrants; to provide for the care and control of such migrants and their property and earnings'. It was designed to protect young (juvenile) migrant apprentices. The Minister for Labour and Industry became responsible for the welfare of juvenile, or youth, migrants, between 14 and 18 years old. The legislation set out the rules under which apprentices could be indentured, to who, and how they could change employment. This act was repealed by the Juvenile Migrants Act 1926.
