Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act reports
On June 1, 2015, the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA) was brought into effect by the Canadian government. The Act requires companies in specific commercial sectors to publicly disclose specific payments made to all governments in Canada and abroad on an annual basis.
The Act is one of the ways Canada is delivering on its international commitment to contribute to global efforts to increase transparency and deter corruption in the extractive sector. We realize conducting business in a responsible and ethical manner requires a commitment to transparency, and reporting these payments is an important way to increase trust with our stakeholders.
