Canadian Malartic Mine is guided by a willingness to build and maintain sincere, respectful community relations. In order to achieve this, we embarked on a collaborative approach in 2015 consisting in an extensive consultation process to ensure wide-ranging citizen participation in order to improve CMM’s practices and good neighbourliness in Malartic.
This voluntary approach, which targeted all citizens and groups in Malartic and Rivière-Héva, as well as certain regional and national groups, was divided into four phases, of which the fourth was undertaken in 2017:
Phase 1 explained the approach to stakeholders and gathered their comments. During the almost ten meetings, seven themes were identified for discussion at the Phase 2 Collaborative Workshop.
The Phase 2 Collaborative Workshop, held in 2015, brought together 122 participants and identified 23 possible solutions that were subsequently divided into eight different projects, which were presented in a single action plan.
Phase 3 saw the rollout of several initiatives, including the development of the Good Neighbour Guide by the Working Group on Coexistence Issues in Malartic. The Guide is a first in Quebec and perhaps a first in Canada, too.
During Phase 4, rolled out in 2017, a report was prepared on the collaborative approach and presented to the public. As well, a printed newsletter and video brief summarizing the approach were prepared and disseminated.
