As the voice of the Canadian video game industry, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC) seeks opportunities to amplify its member companies’ commitment to trust and safety.
ESAC partners with Safer Internet Day (SID). From cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and current concerns.
ESAC partners with QueerTech, an organization that strives to queer the tech ecosystem by breaking down barriers, creating spaces, and connecting communities to support and empower 2SLGBTQ+ people to thrive.
ESAC is a member of the GVGC. The GVGC seeks to cultivate a dialogue with public health policymakers about the mental, physical and social benefits of video game play and the industry’s long-standing commitment to responsible game play.
ESAC also works to improve communication among its member companies, government authorities and third-party organizations. For instance, the ESAC hosts an annual interactive showcase in Ottawa, where parliamentarians, community organizations, and students have an opportunity to interact with members.
