 Are we connected to the gold Yohane (above) mines in Mozambique?


Right now, the Government of Canada's Subcommittee on International Human Rights is studying how child labour is connected to the goods corporations sell.

 

This study is timely considering 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)    


You have until December to call on the subcommittee to help 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.  

The Goal: 10,000 Messages

 Join us in calling on the Subcommittee on International Human Rights 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 has started to provide consumers with the information they need to make ethical purchasing decisions, and helped civil society groups hold companies accountable to their human rights commitments.
