Canada: Govt. launches consultation on labour exploitation in global supply chains (deadline: 30 June 2019)
We want stakeholder feedback on possible ways to address labour exploitation in global supply chains. This first phase of consultations responds to the 2018 report by the Subcommittee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development. You can read the full report, A Call to Action: Ending the Use of all Forms of Child Labour in Supply Chains.
Over the next several weeks, we are seeking information from stakeholders through an online survey. The information you provide will help determine how to address labour exploitation in global supply chains, which could include:
- child labour,
- forced labour and
- other human rights abuses.
... Everyone is welcome to participate, however we are particularly interested in receiving feedback from key stakeholders, including unions, businesses, experts, investors and civil society organizations.
Please read the issue brief in full before completing our online survey. The survey closes on June 21, 2019.
