What does the CORE do if it finds there was human rights abuse?
If we decide that a Canadian company abused any human rights, then we will recommend ways for the company, the Canadian government, and others to fix the harm. We do this is several ways.
We report publicly on what we find. We follow up to see if the harm has been fixed.
We may recommend that the Canadian company take any of these actions:
- pay to compensate people who are harmed by a human rights abuse
- apologize publicly for NOT respecting the human rights of the people who have been harmed
- do what is needed to fix the harm including paying wages, giving back land, and cleaning up pollutions
- make changes so that the same harm or similar harm doe NOT happen again
We may recommend that the Canadian government take these actions:
- stop trade support to the Canadian company
- refuse to give trade or financial support to the company in the future
- send the complaint to another organization or to police
- change Canadian laws and policies
We are NOT a court. We do NOT have the power to make people or companies take specific actions.
