About Us

EthicScan Canada Limited is a Toronto-based, full service consulting, corporate responsibility research house and educational resource centre.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help organizations and individuals behave more ethically. This includes socially responsible consuming, managing, procurement, investing and partnering. We provide a range of original research, management tools, training solutions, and organizational analysis for executives, consumers, investors, civil society organizations, development officers and other stakeholders who want to enhance, benchmark and verify an organization’s ethical standards, integrity practices and socially-responsible behaviour.

The practice was established as a fee-for-service business in 1989 in Toronto by our founder, David Nitkin.

From its inception, EthicScan has emphasized original independent research into the social, labour and environmental performance of 1500 Canadian organizations in order to provide resources, creative tools, case studies and advice.

This information and experience has empowered many individuals and progressive organizations to benchmark their performance and, in so doing, promote ethical decision-making.

EthicScan’s research is independent, honest, rigorous and transparent. Our multi-stakeholder engagements are responsible, accountable and respectful. All our researchers, consultants and trainers sign a EthicScan Corporate Code of Conduct. The identities of our clients are confidential, unless otherwise agreed to.
