Building the Canadian Advantage: A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategy for the Canadian International Extractive Sector, 2009. As part of the Government of Canada’s approach to encourage voluntary compliance with internationally-recognized CSR tools and guidelines, the Government of Canada promotes GRI, which can help Canadian companies measure and manage their economic, environmental, social and governance performance. In turn, enhanced accountability and transparency through the reporting process can lead to good CSR performance and encourage market-based rewards for Canadian companies.
