The debate over the main responsibility of enterprises is immemorial [5] [7], and opposes those who still claim that the sole responsibility of the company is to be profitable and those who claim that the responsibilities to various stakeholders are much more extensive. Shareholders are therefore a public trial for businesses. We therefore propose a study that consider the multiple and complex relationships between different actors including: Canadian mining companies, the home state enterprises (Canada), the media, investors, but also underlying variables, including social responsibility, the legislative framework, the history of the area, socially responsible investing, etc. Through a content analysis of corporate social responsibility news dealing with Canadian mining companies and their international activities, we are looking to investigate the link with their diffusion and the reactions of mining sector investors
