OUR COMMITMENT

Gatekeeper is committed to preventing and reducing the risk that forced labour or child labour is used in the production of the goods it sells in Canada and globally. The company relies on ethical business practices and operates in compliance with national and international labour standards.

STRUCTURE, ACTIVITIES, AND SUPPLY CHAINS

The company also imports into Canada goods that are produced outside of that country.

Gatekeeper sources and procures materials from various approved vendors located in North America and internationally. In particular, the suppliers of the signs, shopping cartwheels, anti-tilt bars, and perimeter wire used in the production Gatekeeper’s goods are based in Malaysia.

Ultimately, the finished goods produced by Gatekeeper are primarily sold across Canada and the United States.

Gatekeeper Canada focuses primarily on the purchase and importation of products from its parent company, as well as domestic and international suppliers, for re-sale into the Canadian market.
