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:
- Gain an increased understanding about mining by visiting Cameco’s MacArthur River Mine and Key Lake Mill in northern Saskatchewan
- Connect with Cameco’s local communities of interest to learn more about key social and environmental issues that matter to communities
- Complete the post-verification review process for Agnico Eagle Mines and Taseko
- 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
