Join us for an insightful presentation to discuss the compliance requirements of Bill S-211 (An Act to enact the Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act) and the evolving landscape of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) in Canada.

Ensure your organization meets the new standards if required to comply.
  2. Current State of ESG in Canada: Explore the latest in sustainability disclosure requirements for Canada. Understand who is involved, what they are saying and what is being considered for the Canadian marketplace.

Hear from Edward Olson, partner and National Leader of MNP’s Environmental, Social & Governance professional services, a leading expert in ESG compliance and sustainability.

This session will also include an interactive Q&A session. Engage directly with our presenter and get your most pressing questions answered. Take advantage of this opportunity to clarify doubts and gain practical advice from an industry leader.
