Approaches to Indigenous Community Engagement and COVID-19

There has been a pause in formal regulatory consultations as a result of COVID-19. However, maintaining regular contact with Indigenous partners and local leadership remains critical. The COVID-19 crisis presents some challenges with respect to how companies engage with communities. MAC members were quick to implement innovative approaches and embrace the use of technology to stay connected. While face-to-face meetings are no longer taking place, companies are staying engaged through phone calls, email and virtual meetings. As required in TSM, companies are tailoring their engagement practices to how the community would like to engage and adjusting accordingly.
