Conflict Minerals Policy

In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission adopted a new rule, as mandated by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act ("Section 1502"), requiring companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country. Under Section 1502, the term "conflict minerals" includes tantalum, tin, tungsten or gold.

Sears Canada is committed to ensuring that it's products are obtained in a socially responsible manner and is taking steps to ensure compliance with Section 1502, including conducting supply chain due diligence to identify the presence of conflict minerals in those products that it contracts to manufacture.
