THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

TSM Aboriginal and Community Outreach Framework

Several Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Guiding Principles have direct applicability to the relationship between mining companies and Aboriginal Peoples (First Nation, Inuit, Métis) and indigenous peoples worldwide. We believe that our industry and Aboriginal communities share a common interest in ensuring that mining activity takes place responsibly, in a manner that creates economic opportunity, is respectful of community interests and protects the environment and ensures public safety. MAC members also recognize that we need to conduct our interactions with Aboriginal peoples in a manner that reflects the particular interests of the communities where they reside. We also recognize that governments play an important role in enabling effective relationships between Aboriginal peoples and the mining industry.
