Canada Ratifies Maritime Labour Convention

ILO TV interviews Cleopatra Doumbia- Henry, Director of the International Labour Standards Department about Canada's ratification of the ILO Maritime Labour Convention. "It demonstrates a re-engagement by Canada with international labour standards and it's the first convention ratified by Canada in ten years," says Ms. Doumbia-Henry. The labour standard, sometimes called the “super convention” because of its scope for protecting the working conditions of seafarers, was adopted by the 94th International Labour Conference in Geneva in February 2006.
