The Office has two Learning Partnerships with academic institutions. Our partnership with Ryerson University hosts a series of free and open-to-the public events each year. Upcoming events are planned for our partnership with Simon Fraser University.
The Institute for the Study of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Ryerson University and the Office of the Extractive Sector CSR Counsellor announced the launch of a Learning Partnership on CSR and the extractive sector overseas in the fall of 2010. This partnership builds a neutral platform to contribute to informed public discussion of important issues related to corporate social responsibility of mining, oil and gas companies, and enhances cross-sector networking opportunities for those interested in these questions.
The Institute for the Study of CSR is located in the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University. The Institute seeks to advance CSR research, recognizing that increasingly, CSR issues are drivers for change in the business community. The goal of the Institute is to promote the Institute and Ryerson University as a centre of excellence in research and peer-reviewed publications on CSR issues, to increase research and understanding on these issues and thereby also increase research productivity in the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University, and to develop practical solutions.

The Office of the Extractive Sector CSR Counsellor, and the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, announced their Learning Partnership on CSR and the extractive sector overseas in May 2012.
Building on the success of the Office’s first learning partnership, with the Ryerson Institute for the Study of CSR at Ryerson University in Toronto, this new partnership will provide an additional forum for informed discussion of important issues related to corporate social responsibility of mining, oil and gas companies, promoting dialogue and cross-sector networking opportunities for those interested in these questions.
The principal contact for the partnership is the Responsible Mineral Sector Initiative (RMSI), housed in the Beedie School of Business. RMSI is a collaborative initiative to bring together people and organizations from diverse perspectives and experiences to share insights and concepts, develop strategies and tools, and build networks and relationships for effective leadership and responsible management in the mineral sector.
