2023 Modern Day Slavery Report

In accordance with Canada’s Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act (the “Act”), on behalf of Canerector Inc. (“Canerector”, “we”, “us” or “our”), below is our 2023 Modern Day Slavery Report (the “Report”), for the January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023 reporting period. The Report aims to identify and assess risks of forced and/or child labour (“Modern Slavery”) within our applicable subsidiaries’1 (the “Subsidiaries”) operations and supply chains. It also outlines the actions taken by the Subsidiaries to address, reduce, and prevent Modern Slavery. We understand that slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking are issues of increasing global concern, affecting all sectors, regions, and economies.
