Canada's Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development has issued a new report entitled: "A Call to Action: Ending the Use of All Forms of Child Labour in Supply Chains." The report offers realistic solutions, including legislative action, that can and should be adopted to address child and forced labour in Canadian supply chains, according to World Vision, Canada's largest international development and relief organization... World Vision... urges the Government of Canada to immediately take the next critical steps by formally committing to working with civil society, trade unions, investors, and the private sector to design the right supply chain legislation for Canada... "This report reconfirms that it's time for the Government of Canada to introduce legislation to address the risk of child and forced labour in our supply chains," says Michael Messenger, President of World Vision Canada... Other countries are already taking action, Canada needs to commit to federal supply chain legislation or risk falling behind on promoting responsible business and human rights including the protection of children from exploitation and harm."
