As Bill S-211 (the Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act) continues through the legislative process, the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise (CORE) recently released its report on child labour in the apparel supply chain, entitled Respect for Child Rights and the Risk of Child Labour in the Global Operations and Supply Chains of Canadian Garment Companies (the “Report”). The Report makes various findings and recommendations relating to Canadian garment companies’ obligations in eliminating child labour from their supply chains.
