Communities and People: Aggregate Performance

Aboriginal and Community Outreach

Facilities continue to demonstrate high levels of leadership and excellence on the Aboriginal and Community Outreach Protocol. In 2022, facilities will report for the first time on the new Indigenous and Community Relationships Protocol, which includes two new indicators: one focused on effective engagement and dialogue with Indigenous communities and another on managing impacts and benefits associated with mining operations.

Crisis Management and Communications Planning

Facilities continue to demonstrate strong performance on the Crisis Management and Communications Planning Protocol. A slight decline in performance on Indicator 3, Training, is due to several facilities that had met the training requirements in the previous reporting year no longer meeting these criteria in 2019. MAC will be considering whether updates to this protocol are needed in 2022, and will also engage in dialogue with members to understand the relative stagnation in performance in recent years.

Safety and Health

Facilities continue to demonstrate a high degree of performance on the Safety and Health Protocol. Of note, an increasing proportion of facilities are reaching AAA on Indicator 3 – Training, behaviour, and culture. In 2022, facilities will begin reporting on a revised version of this protocol that includes new requirements related to critical controls, high consequence hazards, and mental health.

Facilities report on the Preventing Child and Forced Labour Protocol every three years during the external verification of TSM performance results. The first year of reporting on this protocol was 2018. In both 2018 and 2019, facilities undergoing external verification consistently met all requirements associated with this protocol.
