Our Focus

Through research, analysis, collaboration and outreach, Above Ground promotes business practice that is respectful of human rights and the environment. We shed light on the links between transnational business and human rights abuse, and advance solutions for corporate accountability in Canada.

Our work falls into two overarching themes:

Corporate accountability

We encourage Canadian companies and the Canadian government to protect against human rights abuse in relation to their overseas business activities.
