COI Panel Statement (2018)

The Community of Interest Advisory Panel (COI Panel) was established in 2004, and has played a key role in the design, and subsequent implementation and evolution of the TSM initiative. The Panel is composed of individuals who are nominated based on the community of interest they represent, including the mining industry. The communities represented on the Panel are directly or indirectly impacted by the activities of the mining industry. As Panel members, individuals from the mining industry actively engage in Panel discussions, provide company insights, and help connect the Panel’s work to the MAC membership. The current COI Panel includes 18 individuals from Indigenous communities, people working in international development, economic and community development organizations, environmental and social NGOs, the finance/investment sector, organized labour, as well as individuals with issue-specific expertise and industry members.

This Panel statement offers an independent reflection from the non-industry members of the COI Panel on key areas of interest and progress since the previous statement. It covers the October 2017 meeting at the site of the Glencore Raglan Mine and the March 2018 meeting in Toronto, as well as interim Panel activities.
