Indigenous rights threatened by resource development in Canada and abroad

September 18, 2013

Cross-Posted From Amnesty International

An estimated three-quarters of the world’s mining and minerals exploration
companies are headquartered in Canada. Through new trade agreements and
other initiatives, the federal government is opening doors for further
expansion of Canadian oil and gas, mining and other extractive industries,
around the world—including in countries like Colombia and Guatemala where
there is widespread and brutal violation of the human rights of Indigenous
peoples.

Join Amnesty International's call to the Canadian government to ensure
that Indigenous Rights are safeguarded whenever they may be affected by
resource companies operating at home and abroad.
