Challenge Canada's Cosmetic Industry to stop using Child Labour
Mica, a mineral found in many skin, nail, eye, and lip products, is mined in India and has a long history of using child labour. When children work in illegal mines they are put in dangerous situations and receive very little compensation. Sign PetitionSign Petition
This Fall, the Government of Canada's Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development will be considering a report following a study on the connection between child labour and the goods corporations sell. This is timely as a recent report revealed that 65% of Canada's cosmetic companies may be linked to supporting child labour in India.
Now is the time! Help us urge the committee to make a strong recommendation that the Government of Canada create transparency legislation that would empower Canadians to know more about whether child labour is being used by their favourite local makeup brands.
