Online talk to dig into impact of legislative changes on mining sector

The impact new legislative changes in the mining sector have had on businesses will be at the centre of this week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series event.

Legislation, including Canada’s Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA), requires extractive companies to report their payment to foreign governments in an effort to combat corruption. The market response to disclosures mandated by ESTMA is the topic of the online event taking place Friday, Oct. 1.

Fayez Elayan, Department Chair and Professor in Accounting at the Goodman School of Business, will present co-authored research that delves deeper into this topic during his talk, “The Market Response to Mandatory Disclosure of Payments to Foreign Governments under the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act.”

In addition to this research looking at the impact of government payments on market response, Elayan and his team have also examined the market response to conflict mineral disclosures.

The Goodman speaker series provides Goodman faculty, staff and students with an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues virtually.

Elayan’s talk will take place online from 12:30 to 2 p.m. All are welcome to attend and can RSVP to receive a link to the session by emailing Jasmine Stasiuk Riddell at
