The Mining Association of Canada started its Toward Sustainable Mining initiative (TSM) in 2000 with the intention of enhancing the industry’s reputation by improving its environmental, social and economic performance. As part of this initiative, the MAC Board agreed to develop a Community of Interest Advisory Panel as a means of strengthening engagement with mining communities of interest, and to help achieve the objectives of the TSM initiative. What follows is a report from the second meeting of the Community of Interest (COI) Advisory Panel, held in Toronto, Ontario on September 22, 2004.
The report presents a summary of discussions from the September 22, 2004 meeting of the Community of Interest (COI) Advisory Panel, including decisions on the work of the Panel and recommendations to the Mining Association of Canada. Any dissenting views have been clearly identified and recorded.
