As a result of their deliberations committees may make recommendations which they include in their reports for the consideration of the House of Commons or the Government. One recommendation related to this study is listed below:
That the Government of Canada introduce legislation requiring Canadian corporations to conduct human rights due diligence to identify, prevent, mitigate and account for any potential adverse human rights, environmental and gendered impacts they may cause throughout their supply chains and operations.
In addition, as a result of their deliberations (see page 36), the subcommittee also wants to offer two considerations to the House of Commons or the Government, as listed see below:
That the Governor in Council appoint the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise as a commissioner pursuant to Part I of the Inquiries Act. The Subcommittee recommends this appointment remain in place until legislation establishing the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise with the power to compel witnesses and documents has been adopted by the Parliament of Canada.
That the Government of Canada table legislation in the Parliament of Canada establishing the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise and vesting it with the power to compel witnesses and documents.
