In reference to Subsection 11(1) of the Act for the year 2023 our Employee Culture Handbook in 2023 (Attachment 1) included a clear directive to our staff relating to Forced and Child Labor, this has been further expanded, as well as a standalone document in 2024.

Our Company is Incorporated, and the organization structure is detailed on (Attachment II). Our organizational mandate is to be the logical choice in supplying hair tools and essentials to salon professionals, while maintaining our core values of integrity, quality, innovation, and excellence while building strong communities.

Our Company employs twenty-six employees in Canada. We are a standalone entity which distributes goods to distributors and professional consumers around the world through our Head Office in Canada and two 3PLs in Holland and China. 


Our Supply Chain begins with goods being manufactured in China, India, Malayasia, United States and Canada. Framar purchases the goods from the manufacturer or distributor in China, India, Malayasia, United States and Canada and where required imports to our Canadian location or one of our 3PL’s in the Netherlands or China. Orders are received from Distributors and/or Clients directly and the orders are subsequently fulfilled from the closest location and then delivered to our clients around the world.


As a family owned and managed company, we are diligent in all aspects of our business. We can investigate/react immediately to any potential problems throughout our supply chain, as there is no complex chain of command.


We are aware there is Forced Labor in the countries where our goods are manufactured, for this reason Framar has implemented new procedures/processes in 2024 to address this issue within our Supply Chain. As this report is to be based on our previous fiscal year of 2023 and as reflected in the responses to the Questionnaire Framar did not have processes/procedures in place to address Forced and/or Child Labor, other than the section in our Code of Conduct Company Culture. We have implemented processes/procedures in 2024 to address this issue in our Supply Chain. For your reference we have provided our Forced and Child Labor Procedure (Attachment #III).  Our report for Year 2024 will reflect these changes. 




In accordance with the requirements of the Act, and in particular section 11 thereof, I attest that I have reviewed the information contained in the report for the entity or entities listed above. Based on my knowledge, and having exercised reasonable diligence, I attest that the information in the report is true, accurate and complete in all material respects for the purposes of the Act, for the reporting year listed above.
