About Publish What You Pay Canada
Publish What You Pay Canada is part of a global network of over 800 civil society organisations united in their call for oil, gas and mining revenues to form the basis for development and improve the lives of citizens in resource-rich countries.
We work to address the “resource curse”, a phenomenon by which countries rich in natural resources (such as oil, gas and minerals) – “resource-rich” countries – tend to have less economic growth, worse development outcomes, higher inequality and weaker institutions than countries with fewer natural resources. We do this by promoting the transparent, accountable and sustainable management of oil, gas and minerals so that they contribute to prosperity for all.
In Canada, we are focusing on the implementation of the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act. This act is broadly aligned with legislation requiring that mining, oil and gas companies report payments in other markets, including the EU and the US.
PWYP-Canada is hosted by Partnership Africa Canada and is based out of PAC’s Ottawa office. PAC is the legal employer of all PWYP-Canada employees.
