In September 2015, world leaders will gather at the United Nations (UN) in New York to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This new development framework will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expire this year.

From July 13-16, world leaders meet in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia, for the Third International Conference on Financing for Development to discuss how to mobilize the money needed to end extreme poverty by 2030 and to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Millions of children—some as young as six-years old—are working as slaves in sweatshops, on plantations, in dangerous mines, and in the sex trade. Boys and girls are trafficked or pushed in to work that harms their bodies, minds, and spirits, threatening their lives and futures.

Join us in asking the Canadian Government to prevent child labour in our supply chains.

Many of the goods Canadians purchase and use on a daily basis—cocoa, coffee, tea, sugar, t-shirts and jewelry—are at risk of containing child labour.
