Canadian Investment in Burma

For the year 2005-2006, CFOB is working on a vigorous campaign to stop all Canadian investment in Burma. At the moment there are several Canadian companies active in Burma, providing the regime with a substantial amount of revenue to purchase weaponry used to brutally supress the people of Burma.

CFOB's postion towards investment in Burma is in accordance to that of Burma's elected MPs from the NCGUB and the NLD, which is that all foreign investment from Burma should be withdrawn until democracy is restored.

CFOB will be working with Canadian NGOs and labour unions to campaign to remove all Canadian investment from BUrma. CFOB will petition all Canadian companies linked to Burma and will lobby the Government of Canada to remove all Canadian investment in Burma, which is linked to Burma's military government.

Regime Backers: IVANHOE MINES and the CPP

Infamous Canadian mining compnay, Ivanhoe Mines is in a 50/50 partnership with the Burmese junta. CFOB feels that Ivanhoe should cease its activities in Burma and withdraw immediately. CFOB will be renewing its efforts to encourage Ivanhoe to withdraw from Burma.

CFOB will initiate a letter writing campaign and public awareness campaign, to inform the public of the impact of Ivanhoe's business operations in Burma.
