New Transparency Law in Canada

The Government of Canada has put into effect the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act, as part of omnibus legislation Bill C-43. Under this Act, publicly traded and large private oil, gas, and mining companies must publicly disclose payments to governments, not just in Canada, but around the world. PWYP-Canada welcomes this legislation and the Canadian government's leadership on extractive transparency. We are currently advocating that the data is disclosed in an open format and that the form and manner of reporting meets international best practice in this field. 

Transparency and the prospect of a better future
