The Direct Selling Association (DSA) of Canada organized a “day on the hill” in Ottawa to meet with Members of Parliament (MPs) and other important decision makers. Sixteen total meetings were held with representatives of all major parties and staff members from important agencies, including the Competition Bureau, focusing on promoting the economic and social functions that the direct selling industry plays in Canada.
“Days like these are important,” said DSA Canada President Peter Maddox. “They help support future collaboration and lead to year-round opportunities to engage and consult on a range of important topics.”
The DSA Canada also highlighted the necessity of a national regulatory process that would strengthen the industry and consumer confidence, as well as the need for stability in maintaining independent contractor status for all direct selling workers in the future.
