COI Panel Meeting Report: October 2015

Meeting of the Community of Interest Advisory Panel Summary Report, September 29 – October 1, 2015, Saskatoon, SK

Established in 2004, the Community of Interest Advisory Panel (COI Panel) is an independent multi-stakeholder group that monitors the Mining Association of Canada’s 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 between September 29 and October 1, 2015 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The objectives of the October meeting were to:

  1. Gain an increased understanding about mining by visiting Cameco’s MacArthur River Mine and Key Lake Mill in northern Saskatchewan
  2. Connect with Cameco’s local communities of interest to learn more about key social and environmental issues that matter to communities
  3. Complete the post-verification review process for Agnico Eagle Mines and Taseko
  4. Hold a preliminary discussion on the issue of climate change from a broad industry perspective in order to challenge and encourage MAC and its members to take a more holistic and long-term approach to climate change, as understood by COI Panel members
