TSM Aboriginal and Community Outreach Protocol, 2017

The purpose of the assessment protocol is to provide guidance to facilities in completing their evaluation of Aboriginal and community outreach performance against TSM indicators. The assessment protocol sets out the general expectations for Aboriginal and community outreach as part of the TSM initiative. This protocol supports implementation of the TSM Mining and Aboriginal Peoples Framework. As with any assessment of a management system, professional judgment is required in assessing the degree of implementation of a system indicator and the quality of management processes and intervention. Application of this protocol will, therefore, require a level of expertise in auditing and systems assessment and knowledge of and experience in the practice of Aboriginal and community outreach. This assessment protocol provides an indicator of the level of implementation of proactive outreach and engagement practices as part of the TSM initiative. It is not, of itself, a guarantee of the effectiveness of Aboriginal and community outreach activities.
