Report on Measures to Prevent and Reduce the Risk of Forced and Child Labour in Supply Chains


This is the first report of Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation under the Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act (the “Act”). This report sets out the information required by Act and affirms our plans to implement and further develop appropriate measures to combat forced and child labour in our supply chains.

Steps taken during 2023

CSEC first became aware of the Modern Slavery Act in late 2023 and subsequently engaged our legal counsel to assist in navigating the new reporting regime. As a result of the timing of becoming aware of the new reporting requirements, we did not take any steps in 2023 in relation to reducing the risks of modern slavery occurring in the Corporation's supply chain; however, we are not aware of any high-risk exposure to modern slavery associated with the Corporation's supply chain. We intend to continue to evaluate our reporting processes to ensure that our reporting with respect to modern slavery meets the statutory requirements.

b. Supply Chain

Our supply chains include third party suppliers of products, services and merchandise for commercial, broadcasting and sport team administration operations which suppliers sometimes import products and merchandise primarily from North America. These include, amongst others, suppliers for the following products and services:
• Broadcasting equipment/services;
• Audiovisual equipment/services;
• Technology: information technology infrastructure, hardware providers, software suppliers, public cloud services; outsourced data centre services, data, and data feeds.
• Catering equipment, products and services;
• Hockey, lacrosse and football operations equipment and services;
• Retail Trade;
• Food and Beverage;
• Retail Operations, including clothing and other items sold in store; The majority of our first-tier suppliers are based in North America.


CSEC has a number of internal policies and practices in place for our employees which set out the ethical business conduct principles with which all our employees must comply. Relevant policies that we have adopted include policies on Health and Safety, Workplace Violence Prevention, Workplace Harassment Prevention, Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest and Disciplinary policies among others.
We expect all of our suppliers to adhere to applicable laws, including those relating to labour standards, and the importation of goods into Canada made in whole or in part by forced or child labour.


CSEC recognizes that certain elements of its supply chains may have a risk of forced labour and child labour. For the activities conducted at our locations we are not aware of any such risk, where risk could exist is with our suppliers.

We intend to review our suppliers over the course of 2024 to gain a better understanding of our supply chain and further improve our understanding of forced and child labour risks. As noted above, the majority of our first-tier suppliers are based in Canada and the United States. As such, we believe that our direct risks from first tier suppliers of forced and child labour are low.


We are currently reviewing the company policies for effectiveness.


We have not identified, and we are not aware of any incidents of forced or child labour in our supply chains. As such, we have taken no remediation measures. We are committed to taking appropriate remediation measures and assisting vulnerable persons to the extent we become aware of any instances of forced or child labour.


CSEC provides training sessions for all new employees, which include onboarding and familiarization with key policies and practices. We conduct staff training on safety, violence and harassment training as well as on our core values and mission.
