Access ESTMA reports and data
The Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA) helps deter corruption in the global extractive sector by requiring entities to disclose certain types of payments made to governments in Canada and abroad. The ESTMA Data Portal, which Natural Resources Canada launched in collaboration with Statistics Canada, brings together ESTMA data from the last five (5) calendar years in one online location. The portal allows users to search ESTMA payment information by Entity, Payee and project, and further enriches the data with analytical functions to help users leverage the complete ESTMA dataset. Data can also be downloaded in .csv format for further analysis.
Links to ESTMA reports from the last five (5) years are available on the Entity section of the data portal. For additional information on the ESTMA and what is in scope of the Act, see the About the ESTMA page.
Please report errors, non-functional links or omissions on the website or in the data by email.
The file size is approximately 50 MB and can take up to one minute to download.

Data portal notes
Payee Name Normalisation: The names of payees reported in the ESTMA Data Portal have been normalised for clarity and to ensure that payments are attributed correctly. For instance, payments originally reported to the “Canadian Government,” or the “Federal Government of Canada” have been normalised as “the Government of Canada.” Please see entities’ full reports, which are linked in the ESTMA Data Portal, for all original payee names.
Data Aggregation: Please note that payment data for parent companies and subsidiaries is aggregated to the parent company. The Act does not require parent companies to report payments made by, or on behalf of, their subsidiaries separately. As such, the payments reported by parent companies are also attributed to their subsidiaries. Companies that submit individual reports or that report on behalf of wholly-owned subsidiaries are labelled as "report issuers" in the ESTMA Data Portal. Information about subsidiary companies also includes the company that issues reports on their behalf.
Translated Payee Names: Payee names have been translated into English and French to ensure that the ESTMA Data Portal meets official language requirements. Please see entities’ full reports for payee names in their original languages.
Report Notes: Entities often include additional information and context about their reported payments in the ‘Notes’ column of the ESTMA reporting template. These notes are not displayed in the ESTMA Data Portal. Please consult entities’ full reports, which are available via links in the ESTMA Data Portal, for any informational notes.
Reporting Currency: All payments reported in the ESTMA Data Portal are displayed in Canadian dollars (CAD). For entities that report in currencies other than CAD, payments have been converted to CAD using an appropriate and representative exchange rate for the applicable periods (e.g. exchange rate at close of the final day of an entity’s financial year).
Data Availability: Section 12(2) of the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act requires that companies make their reports available to the public for a period of five (5) years. As such, the ESTMA Data Portal will include entities’ reports from their five (5) most recent financial years and will annually remove any reports older than five (5) years. Please note that companies may continue to make older reports available on their corporate websites.
