TSM International Business Plan

The global expansion of TSM is creating opportunities for Canadian consultants, as they are able to market their professional services related to TSM to companies implementing TSM abroad. Specifically, Canadian industry experts and auditors are being commissioned by facilities outside of Canada to conduct external verification of their performance against the TSM protocols. Canadian engineering firms are being sought after to design and manage tailings impoundments and other Canadian consultants are gaining international business to help advise companies and associations on TSM implementation.

Over the past several years, MAC has developed a strong relationship with Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service and has benefited from support provided by Global Affairs Canada’s to help foster uptake of TSM in abroad. This support has been critical to initiate TSM international growth interest, and with it and the evolution of TSM, we are now at a defining point in the opportunity and ability to support further growth and expansion.

To capture this opportunity and advance TSM to the next stage as a leading international responsible mining standard, MAC needs the certainty associated with GOA support to implement the TSM International Growth Plan over the next 3 years. This support will enable MAC to capitalize on the current high level of international interest in TSM, increase the number of countries in which it pursues TSM licensing agreements, and provide the training and capacity development support necessary to ensure effective and credible program implementation and to ensure the TSM brand is promoted and adopted while being protected and responsibly implemented globally. Without this support it is unlikely that MAC will be able to capture this opportunity and execute this plan.
