Taking up the AFN Corporate Challenge

CIM Toronto 2009
Abstract This presentation will profile The Mining Association of Canada’s recent work in engaging Aboriginal governments and communities, through its commitments in Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM). MAC recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to take up the Assembly of First Nation’s Corporate Challenge, incorporating the AFN’s four pillars of partnerships, investment, procurement and employment. As a means of regional engagement, MAC has recently initiated an Aboriginal-Mining Forum in the north, designed to strengthen relationships between the northern minerals industry and Aboriginal governments and organizations in the NWT, with the ultimate goal of achieving long-term sustainability of communities with mining as a key element of economic security.
