OTTAWA - Canada is moving forward with new legislation that would see companies face hefty fines if they are caught importing products made with slave or child labour.

The Senate, the upper house of parliament in Canada, has given a second reading to a bill that could see CAN$250,000 fines and directors’ liability for companies that import slave-made goods.

The bill would require all companies with more than 250 employees, or CAN$40 million in annual turnover, to provide annual reports confirming that imported goods were not made by children or slaves.
