Canada is developing a unique multi-stakeholder approach to increasing the transparency of payments to government made by extractive sector companies. A working group comprised of industry associations and civil society organizations (the Resource Revenue Transparency Working Group, or RRTWG) came together in 2012 to develop a reporting framework for Canadian extractive companies – with the overarching goal of establishing greater transparency in the mining sector in Canada and overseas. Two of the key actors in the RRTWG are Publish What You Pay Canada (PWYPC) and the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC). The access to information resulting from the implementation of the Working Group’s recommended framework is intended to provide citizens around the world with the tools they need to achieve accountable, responsible and transparent management of natural resource development. Building on this, and on initiatives in the U.S. and elsewhere, in June, 2013, the federal government announced that its intention to establish mandatory reporting standards for Canadian extractive companies. The emerging Canadian approach shows the potential for the private sector and civil society to take leadership and work together to find common solutions to resource extractive sector issues, and it shows the willingness of the federal government to build on private sector-civil society cooperative efforts. On Monday, April 7, from 12 noon to 1:30 pm, Claire Woodside of PWYPC and Ross Gallinger of PDAC will discuss their work to date and next steps. Claire Woodside is the Director of Publish What You Pay-Canada.

This event is organized by the Ryerson University Institute for the Study of CSR, with co-sponsors the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association, the Ryerson Corporate Social Responsibility Student Association, the Ryerson MBA Mining Stream, and the Ryerson Chang School Continuing Education Mining Management Certificate Program.
