Event Details

UNICEF Canada, CSR, & the Canadian Extractive Industry

Monday, March 17, 3 pm to 4:30 pm

Canadian mining companies can have a profound impact on children overseas, both for good and for bad. Cross-sector partnerships are commonly used in an effort to maximise the benefits and minimise the risks as corporate responsibility in the extractive industry continues to expand.  As the UN body with the specific mandate to promote the interests of children, the UNICEF mandate and activities can frequently overlap with that of the extractive industry in developing country contexts. This talk will map out the evolution of UNICEF Canada’s approach to CSR, the impact of Canadian mining companies on children overseas, and examples of government and corporate engagement on this issue. Current opportunities and challenges will be explored, and attendees will be challenged to rethink their perceptions of the role of multilateral agencies and the extractive industry in sustainable development.  This event is organized by the Ryerson University Institute for the Study of CSR, with co-sponsors the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association and the Ryerson Corporate Social Responsibility Student Association.
