Since January 1, 2024, federal legislation in Canada requires companies of a certain size that produce, sell, distribute or import goods into Canada to file a report by May 31 each year regarding the risks of forced labour and child labour in their business and supply chains and the efforts taken to reduce those risks.

Canada joins other jurisdictions around the world, including Australia and the UK, in implementing such modern slavery-related reporting legislation.

This resource hub identifies the key issues and latest developments on this new legal requirement.
