Catalogue of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Practices (CSR e-Catalogue)

The information contained in the Catalogue was collected from December 2014 to March 2015, and represents company efforts at that time.

The CSR e-Catalogue

The Catalogue is a data repository designed to publicly showcase and promote the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices of Canadian mining and exploration companies. The Catalogue contains detailed information on CSR activities, and some of the positive impacts they have had, as described by the companies themselves. The Catalogue is envisioned to serve as a learning tool and a source of CSR information for all stakeholders.

How it was developed

Between December 2014 and February 2015, Canadian mining and exploration companies were invited to contribute to the Catalogue using an e-Questionnaire. A total of 51 Canadian companies of various sizes and working in a variety of countries provided contributions for the Catalogue on a variety of CSR related topic areas ranging from human rights, and environmental stewardship, to community engagement, and economic development. Responses detailing examples of CSR practices in these areas have been included in the Catalogue. The questionnaire was not intended to collect data for analysis.

The Catalogue is organized in two sections. The first section deals with practices applicable to an international context, and the other deals with practices in a domestic context. The information has been divided into 16 CSR themes. The content of company responses held in the Catalogue appear as originally submitted except for minor grammatical and format changes necessary to ensure consistency and legibility.


Most of the information in the CSR e-Catalogue website has been provided by Canadian exploration and mining companies. Natural Resources Canada is not responsible for the accuracy, reliability or currency of the information provided by external sources and does not offer any guarantee in that regard, nor does it endorse the content of the information.
