Often, mining organizations partner with communities in the regions in which they operate, on CSR initiatives such as:

  • improving local infrastructure
  • building new residences or schools
  • enhancing the water supply

A joint paper by Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, Viewpoints: Applying IFRSs in the Mining Industry — Recognition of Corporate Social Responsibility Provisions Under IAS 37 will help you better understand your organization's obligations in this area.
