Responding to calls from communities and workers being harmed by Canadian companies around the world, we developed a blueprint for the kind of law we need: one that would require companies to respect human rights and the environment. Similar laws have already been adopted by a number of countries in Europe.

In March 2022, legislation based on our model was tabled in Parliament as private member’s bill C-262.
