Those who have been harmed by Canadian extractive operations overseas need to be able to seek justice in Canada. It’s time for Canada to be Open for Justice. We need legislation giving access to Canadian courts for people who have been seriously harmed by the international operations of Canadian companies and we need a mandatory extractive-sector Ombudsman in Canada.

The Open for Justice campaign invites Canadians to support these demands. For more information contact: or 613-731-6315, ext. 25 The event is organised by the CNCA in collaboration with the School of International Development and Global Studies
