Forced Labour and Human Rights Responsibility Webinar
June 11, 2021
Forced Labour and Human Rights Responsibility Webinar: Join the Canadian Apparel Federation and Borden Ladner Gervais LLP for a presentation on forced labour and modern slavery in global supply chains – with a focus on proposed Modern Slavery legislation in Canada. Given recent customs enforcement in the US and growing concerns expressed by the Canadian government there will be increasing calls for apparel firms to address this issue in their supply chains.
The agenda will include:
What is forced labour?
New CUSMA/USMCA and Customs Tariff provisions (what are they; risks and consequences of import control; getting stopped at the border; follow on complaints; risks re the US)
Enforcements trends of similar measures in the US
Avoiding customs entanglements: doing human rights due diligence
