Reporting Entities must enrol with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) prior to submitting an Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA) report and are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. The purpose of enrolment is to provide NRCan with relevant information required to facilitate the processing of submitted reports. In addition, enrolment facilitates correspondence with extractive businesses and ensures that Reporting Entities receive important notifications and updates on the tools for extractive businesses, substitution determinations and potential changes to reporting processes.
Enrolment is a two-step process:
Completing and Submitting a Contact Form
Reporting Entities, including subsidiary Reporting Entities, must complete and submit a “Contact Form” to NRCan by email at: NRCAN.ESTMA_Reports-Rapports_LMTSE.RNCAN@Canada.ca.
The Contact Form is for NRCan internal administrative use only and will not be published on the ESTMA website.
Obtain an ESTMA ID Number
Following receipt of the Contact Form, NRCan assigns a unique ESTMA ID Number to all Reporting Entities and Subsidiary Reporting Entities by email. The ESTMA ID Number must be referenced in all future correspondence between NRCan and Reporting Entities – including as part of the submission of all future ESTMA reports.
The Contact Form, as well as the Technical Reporting Specifications detailing how to enrol with NRCan, are available for download at the Tools for Extractive Businesses section of this website.
