Canada's enhanced Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategy, Doing Business the Canadian Way: Advancing Corporate Social Responsibility in Canada's Extractive Sector Abroad builds on experience and best practices gained since the 2009 launch of Canada's first CSR strategy, Building the Canadian Advantage: A Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy for the Canadian Extractive Sector Abroad.
The enhanced Strategy, announced on November 14, 2014, clearly demonstrates the Government of Canada's expectation that Canadian companies will promote Canadian values and operate abroad with the highest ethical standards. It also outlines the Government's initiatives to help Canadian companies strengthen their CSR practices and maximize the benefits their investments can provide to those in host countries.
