A copy of the labor rights code of conduct for licensees:

The labor rights code of conduct for licensees:
The University of Ottawa (“University”) is committed to conducting its business affairs in a socially responsible and ethical manner consistent with its educational, research and service mission, as well as its own employment policies. This Policy on Ethical Purchasing (the “Policy”) defines the principles and responsibilities pertaining to the conduct of business affairs at the University.

This Policy applies to the University’s Suppliers and Retailers involved in the production, distribution and/or sale of Apparel and non-Apparel products bearing the name, logo, image or trademark of the University. Additionally, this Policy applies to all of the Subcontractors of these Suppliers and Retailers.

Suppliers and Retailers accept responsibility for ensuring that all Subcontractors in the supply chain are in compliance with the Policy. Although all Suppliers and Retailers are required to adhere to this Policy, they may not, however, represent themselves as having been certified by the University as being in compliance with this Policy.

It is the responsibility of Suppliers and Retailers, for themselves and on behalf of their Subcontractors, to ensure their compliance with the Policy.

While University Suppliers and Retailers are expected to verify and monitor their compliance with this Policy, the University has the right to validate the results. Therefore, the University, or its duly designated agents, reserves the right to independently examine and verify the practices, activities and work sites of Suppliers, Retailers and their Subcontractors.
