Multi-stakeholder Advisory Body on Responsible Business Conduct abroad


On January 17, 2018, Canada announced the creation of a multi-stakeholder Advisory Body (MSAB) on Responsible Business Conduct to advise government on the effective implementation and further development of its laws, policies and practices addressing business and human rights and responsible business conduct (RBC) for Canadian companies operating abroad in all sectors.

Canada recognizes the importance of a highly collaborative effort in advancing Canada’s approach to RBC globally. The aim is to ensure that Canada’s related policies and Canadian business operations abroad can foster inclusive economic growth and respect for human rights.

Contributions of the MSAB and input received from all Canadians actively engaged on RBC have been invaluable in the development of RBC policy.

The MSAB is not currently active.
