Canada disappoints at anti-corruption summit

On May 12th, Canada attended the Global Anti-Corruption Summit hosted by Prime Minister Cameron in the UK. While, many other countries issues strong statements, outlining new measures they plan to undertake to address ongoing corruption risks. Canada's country statement was comparatively weak, outlining a few things Canada has already done and rehashing several development projects funded by Global Affairs Canada. PWYP-Canada calls on the Government of Canada to take a strong stand to address the problems on company secrecy. Specifically, calling on the Government of Canada to commit to create a public registry of the legal and beneficial owners of Canadian companies.
