Abstract:  The taskforce which published this report is a national ecumenical coalition of the major Christian churches in Canada. Established in 1975, its purpose is to respond wherever decisions by Canadian corporations appear to have an adverse effect on vulnerable groups of people who have no power to affect these decisions themselves. They urge corporations to correct policies and to cease activities that contribute to social injustice. Issues of social justice in Southern Africa and Latin America are central to their international agenda, while environmental issues, particularly as they affect Native peoples, are their primary focus in Canada.
The report summarizes the activities of the taskforce as of August, 1987. Concerns included government policy as well as corporation policies with relation to Third World debt, military exports to countries violating human rights, relations with Southern Africa, loans to Chile, Lyell Island, nuclear waste disposal, acid rain and ethical investment funds.
