Directors’ Liability and Climate Risk: Canada – Country Paper

The paper is a more accessible form of reporting the research in the first two papers. It is one of country studies from four jurisdictions, complemented by conferences in Australia (August 2016), Canada (October 2017), South Africa (January 2018) and the UK (June 2016). The national legal papers follow a uniform structure to facilitate comparison of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in each jurisdiction. Moreover, the comparative work is being used to design an actionable framework for directors to integrate climate change issues into governance practice.
