Factsheet on the S2-11 Bill in Canada

What is the law?

On 11 May 2023, the Parliament of Canada adopted Bill S-211, also known as the Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act (the ‘Act'). The Act establishes reporting obligations for certain government institutions and private-sector entities regarding on steps taken to prevent and reduce the risk of forced or child labour in manufacturing, growing, extracting and processing of goods.

Through this Bill, Canada aims to implement its international commitments to eradicate forced and child labour and to improve their practices throughout their global supply chains.
