Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act

Last updated: 15 November 2023

The Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA) requires that certain businesses involved in the commercial development of oil, gas and minerals report the payments they make to governments in Canada and abroad. 
Businesses that are subject to the ESTMA must publish their reports online for at least five years. Members of the public, academics, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), governments around the world and professionals in the resources sector can use ESTMA data to access clear and reliable information about revenues generated from natural resources.
