The CanadaMark programme provides assurance that a CanadaMark diamond was mined in Canada and in a responsible manner. The CanadaMark programme represents the company’s commitment to category marketing of Canadian diamonds. Through this programme, the company aims to highlight the long-term environmental stewardship and social responsibility of the Canadian diamond mining industry, which ultimately will help achieve the highest prices for the company’s diamond production.
