BILL S211 – Fair Labour Practices

Outdoor Gear Canada aims to operate in full compliance with the law and is committed to respecting fair labour practices.  We ask the same of our suppliers.

We are in the process of establishing policies and measures to ensure that our diligence process meets the appropriate and feasible requirements to ensure we identify risks of forced labour or child labour in the supply chain activities and take appropriate measures if any issues are identified.

Founded in 1979, Outdoor Gear Canada is an exclusive distributor of premium cycling products that consumers have consistently chosen and elevated into Canada’s leading brands. Our distribution channel creates access and opportunity for these brands to reach retailers nationwide. Outdoor Gear Canada is headquartered in an office and warehouse complex in Montreal and operates a warehouse in Vancouver for western Canadian dealers.

The majority our trade suppliers are based in the U.S. with a couple headquartered in Europe. Many of those already have claims and statements to attest to their commitment and compliance to applicable local and/or international laws with regards to forced and child labour laws, as demonstrated on their ESG or CSR statements, published on their websites. We also work   with several suppliers of bicycles based in Asia and have asked our Asian agents (based in Taiwan) to confirm that those suppliers’ ’ operations meet the requirements set out in Bill S-211.

This statement constitutes our forced labour and child labour statement as of the fiscal year ended 30 September 2023 and is made pursuant to Bill S-211 passed by the Canadian Federal parliament on May 3rd, 2023, which received royal assent effect January 1st, 2024.

Outdoor Gear Canada attests that its Canadian operations has not engaged in or tolerated any forced and/or child labour.  We have not yet conducted a full external audit of our trade suppliers who mostly outsource manufacturing in Asia and Europe.  The attestations we have gathered from our suppliers regarding their adherence to forced and child labour laws in large part are statements published on their websites.
