Development and Society
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is integral to long-term business growth and success. It also plays an important role in promoting Canadian values internationally and contributing to the sustainable development of communities. International Trade Canada (ITCan) is active in promoting CSR with the Canadian business community, civil society groups, within government and with other countries. Our activities are framed by internationally-agreed voluntary standards, such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the UN Global Compact.
