ESTMA Report

​​The Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (the “Act” or “ESTMA”) was enacted on December 16, 2014, and brought into force on June 1, 2015. The Act delivers on Canada’s international commitments to contribute to global efforts to increase transparency and deter corruption in the extractive sector by requiring certain extractive entities active in Canada to publicly disclose, on an annual basis, specific payments made to all governments in Canada and abroad.

Vale Canada Limited (Vale Canada) is the legal entity that owns base metals extractive operations in Canada, Indonesia and New Caledonia. Reportable payments under ESTMA are specifically defined in the Act. Mineral processing operations conducted by Vale Canada and its subsidiaries are not covered under ESTMA.​
