Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • the Canada Pension Plan fund is managed by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) and is presently at a value of more than $400 billion;
  • Many of our funds have been and are being invested in companies with questionable track records such as weapons manufacturing, environmental pollution, human and labour rights’ abuses, and in those that are contributing towards climate change;
  • The people of Canada expect these investments to be carried out with certain principles in mind, including ethical business practices, and the protection of environmental, labour and human rights; and
  • The investment policies, standards, and procedures of the Canada Pension Plan must take these factors into account to ensure its long-term financial health.
We, the undersigned, Residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to support MP Alistair MacGregor's Bill C-231, An Act to amend the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board Act (investments), ensuring a proactive approach of due diligence is taken by the CPP Investment Board to ethically invest Canada Pension Plan funds while maintaining its overall mandate of achieving a maximum rate of return without undue risk of loss.
