Do you understand the correct procedures for labelling and advertising apparel and textile products in Canada?

The importance of knowing what goes on a label is essential for today's apparel manufacturers and retailers, especially firms selling eco textiles or products with specific performance/attributes (anti-microbial, sun-protective finishes etc.).

The Canadian Apparel Federation together with the federal Competition Bureau is presenting a seminar covering the most important labelling requirements for apparel marketed in Canada.

The seminar will cover a range of issues including basic provisions of the Textile Labelling Act (TLA) and the Competition Act(CA)- including what needs to be on your label, generic fiber names and other claims as they relate to textile products marketed in Canada (Green/Eco-Textiles, Made in Canada, etc.)

The importance of knowing what goes on a label is essential for today's apparel manufacturers and retailers. With new fabrics and treatments being added all the time, companies need to know the rules for correct labelling and marketing of apparel products.

If your firm is using new materials such as bamboo, or organic textiles or if performance features are becoming more important to your marketing efforts you should attend this session.

There will be an opportunity for questions and for companies to speak with officials directly on matters of concern to them.

Day & Time: Wednesday June 11th 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Venue: Simon Fraser University Downtown Campus - 515 West Hastings St.

• Hosted by the Canadian Apparel Federation
• Presented by the Competition Bureau

Carson International will sponsor this seminar. It was founded at a time when the Canadian importing and exporting business was getting set for significant legal and technological change.
