Ethics and mining investment: learning the ropes

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 -
7:30pm to 9:00pm

Part of the Mining activist workshop series
Presenter: Craig MacDougall, investment advisor, VanCity
Where: First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Road (at Quadra), Room 119

Drawing on his years of experience in investment, Craig will address topic including:

  • What screens do "ethical" funds run when it comes to investments in mining companies?
  • How can credit union members and investors influence an organization like VanCity or a specific fund to divest from a given company?
  • When VanCity divests from a company, what does the actual process look like? What are some real world examples?

Bring your questions and ideas!

This is the first in a series of skills-building workshop series for those concerned about Canadian mining impacts at home and abroad. The series is designed to give us the knowledge and skills needed to plan and carry out effective campaigns around investment and to support legal challenges.
