Since 1935, the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) has been the national voice of the Canadian mining industry. Working alongside our members, MAC promotes the industry nationally and internationally, works with governments on policies affecting the sector and educates the public on the value mining brings to the economy and the daily life of Canadians.
Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) is MAC’s commitment to responsible mining. It is a set of tools and indicators to drive performance and ensure that key mining risks are managed responsibly at our members’ facilities. Adhering to the principles of TSM, our members demonstrate leadership by:
• Engaging with communities
• Driving world-leading environmental practices
• Committing to the safety and health of employees and surrounding communities
Established in 2004, its main objective is to enable mining companies to meet society’s needs for minerals, metals and energy products in the most socially, economically and environmentally responsible way.
