Ahead of World Day Against Child Labour, World Vision Canada is engaging Canadians to stand up for the 79 million children trapped in child labour with an immersive experience for students, children and families. This display consists of 79 child mannequins, where each represents one million children globally who are trapped in “3D” jobs: dirty, dangerous and degrading work which harms the physical, mental and emotional development of children.
Canada imported more than $43 billion in risky goods that may have involved child or forced labour in the supply chains of products we buy. And Canada’s child and forced labour problem continues to get worse. Over the past five years, the value of these risky goods has risen by 22%.
Canadians can get involved by joining World Vision’s No Child For Sale initiative. Join over 150,000 other Canadians in calling on our government for greater supply chain transparency, which enables us all to be better informed about the products we buy and consume.
