The Community of Interest Advisory Panel (COI Panel) is an independent multi-stakeholder group that monitors the Mining Association of Canada’s (MAC) Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative’s progress and serves as an external source of knowledge and experience. This executive summary provides a brief account of the meeting held on March 9th, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario.
The March 2016 meeting agenda focused on three topics:
- Tailings Management
- Climate Change
- Effectiveness of Community Engagement
These three topics were selected by the Panel and build upon discussions initiated at previous meetings. This year, the Panel stewarded the process and design for both the climate change and community engagement sessions.
