DEMAND A STOP TO FORCED LABOUR IN CANADA'S SEAFOOD SUPPLY CHAINS

Sign our petition and help #StopSeafoodExploitation.

Right now, our seafood may be hiding a myriad of dark secrets. In complex global seafood supply chains, overfished, mislabelled and endangered fish are all fair game. Forced labourers can work under brutal conditions that violate international human rights standards and illegal practices are left to run rampant.

There is a solution that helps stop the abuse and rewards good fishing practices and honest fishers: traceable, transparent seafood supply chains. In 2019, the Canadian government pledged to implement boat-to-plate traceability, and in 2021 it further pledged to introduce laws to keep products of forced labour out of Canadian supply chains, yet no concrete action has been taken on either pledge since then. That's why we're asking for your help! 

Will you sign the petition calling on the Canadian government to implement fully traceable seafood supply chains and #StopSeafoodExploitation?

Join us and tell the government to stop the flow of seafood products from forced labour into Canada
