"Textile Articles Exempt from the Labelling Requirements
The following list details examples of those consumer textile articles exempt from the labelling requirements of the Act and Regulations. Although these articles are exempt, if they are labelled, they must be labelled in a manner which is neither false or deceptive.

- Overshoes, boots, shoes, indoor slippers, footwear liners and insoles.

Ontario also has different laws regarding stuffed and upholstered articles, I believe the main thing here is there needs to be a label on most stuffed items specifying that the material used to stuff the article is made from New Material.
If anyone knows these laws better, please comment below. What i really want to know is what has to be on a label for say a bib, children's clothing and toys. We are based in Ontario, if this helps at all.
