MiningWatch to Hold Roundtable on Regulating Canadian Mining Companies Operating Internationally

Canadian companies are major players in the global mining industry. The question of regulatory regimes that apply to them when they operate outside their home country is becoming increasingly important in our global economy.

MiningWatch Canada will be holding a one-day roundtable to provide an opportunity for representatives from civil society, government departments and the mining industry, as well as Members of Parliament and invited guests from Latin America, Africa and Asia to examine options for regulatory and/or legislative change and debate the opportunities and difficulties of moving these options forward within the current Canadian political context.
