About the CORE

Mandate of the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise

This is our mandate:

Order in council

The Order in Council sets out how the CORE will operate.

Our vision

A world where Canadian companies respect human rights when they work outside Canada. They do so because it is best for people, for business, and for Canada. At the CORE we work with other organizations to help people and communities. We work together to support Canadian companies where they work around the world to strengthen their respect for human rights.

We commit to recommending remedies that reflect Canada’s respect for human rights wherever Canadian companies work in garment, mining, and oil and gas.

As an ombud, we work to resolve human rights complaints. Our work is independent, transparent, and accountable; we listen to all sides and we make our processes fair.
