Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability - About

Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability

The CNCA unites environmental and human rights NGOs, faith groups, labour unions, and research and solidarity groups across Canada, including the Halifax Initiative. CNCA members seek the adoption of federal legislation that establishes mandatory corporate accountability standards for Canadian extractive companies that operate abroad. The provision of government support to Canadian corporations should be conditional on compliance with these standards.

The network aims to enhance the effectiveness of its members’ activities through information sharing, policy analysis and research, and to coordinate joint advocacy for legal and policy reform. The CNCA also seeks to promote public awareness of these issues.
