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. 

Imagine if, before choosing our next federal government this year, we could make sure that every party leader spoke about issues affecting women and girls. The NDP and the Green Party have signed on to participate in a federal debate on women’s issues, but we have yet to hear from the Liberal Party, the Conservative Party, or the Bloc Quebecois!

In honour of International Women’s Day, call on Justin Trudeau, Stephen Harper, and Mario Beaulieu to take women’s issues seriously.
