Shift Critical International Ltd. and Supply Chain Canada are excited to invite you to the upcoming live Webinar: Canada’s Modern Slavery Act: Practical Insights and Lessons Learned from Year One.

Join Us for This Informative Webinar

Join us for an insightful webinar where representatives from Supply Chain Canada, the preeminent organization representing Canadian supply chain professionals, joins forces with Shift Critical International, Canada’s most experienced team in helping companies navigate the country’s new modern slavery legislation. Together, they will shed light on the nation’s supply chain infrastructure, share lessons learned now that the first disclosure deadline has passed and discuss the importance of staff training as a key component of due diligence.

Our panel of corporate sustainability, supply chain and modern slavery experts have conducted numerous child labour and forced labour supply chain risk assessments, authored modern slavery reports and crafted associated questionnaires during this inaugural reporting season. This webinar will offer the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and practical insights, transcending mere theory.

In this webinar, you can expect:

  • Comprehensive Lessons Learned: A thorough discussion on the challenges faced, best practices and key guiding principles for successful due diligence and disclosure practices, based on our first-year experience working with clients.
  • Governance Framework Design: Insights into how companies are approaching the design of their governance frameworks to incorporate modern slavery considerations and due diligence efforts.
  • Efficient Supply Chain Risk Assessment: Strategies for conducting successful and efficient global supply chain risk assessments.
  • Future Outlook: A look into the potential for the Act to become more stringent.
  • Importance of Staff Training: An emphasis on how staff training on the Act is a low-hanging fruit for due diligence compliance.
