Summary

On 14 March 2018, a specific instance was submitted to the Canadian NCP by three former employees of Flemish Investment Burundi s.a., a subsidiary of the now defunct Flemish Gold Corporation, a Canadian exploration and development company which was headquartered in Toronto, Canada. In June 2014, Flemish Gold Corporation transferred all its shares to Manicouagan Minerals Inc., which later became Murchison Minerals Ltd., also based in Toronto, Canada.

The Notifiers allege the company’s actions constitute non-observance of the concepts and principles chapter and the employment and industrial relations chapter of the OECD Guidelines.

The NCP has engaged with both parties and is preparing its initial assessment.
