Sign our petition and call on Canada to tackle our connection to child labour and modern slavery.

 


Take Action  



The Government of Canada's Subcommittee on International Human Rights will soon be releasing a report looking at the connection between child labour and the goods corporations sell.

This report is necessary as World Vision research found a staggering $34 billion dollars’ worth of goods is imported into Canada at high risk of using child labour or modern slavery.(1)
   


We need to fix a broken system. Most businesses in Canada share little to no information on how they are preventing child labour in their global supply chains.  

Sign the Petition

 Call on the Government of Canada to:

  1. Recommend a law requiring companies in Canada to publicly report on what they are doing to address child labour and modern slavery in their global supply chains.


This type of legislation has been adopted in the U.K. and Australia. In the UK, the results are that consumers have more information to make ethical purchasing decisions, and helped civil society groups hold companies accountable to their human rights commitments.

Call for corporate accountability on child labour.
