Canadian Malartic Mine is committed to developing a collaborative exchange and improving mine-community relations. To this end, we have made clear commitments to the citizens of Malartic and Rivière-Héva, and will put the necessary effort and resources into meeting those commitments.
Commitments - Phase 1 of the Approach
- Submit and release the report, minutes and presentations for each meeting held during Phase 1 of the approach.
All documents were submitted on August 6, 2015.
- Hold a Collaborative Workshop with residents, experts, stakeholders and employees in order to find solutions to the following key issues identified by the community:
- Air quality and dust;
- Vibration and structural integrity;
- Physical and psycho-social health;
- Road traffic and safety;
- Community relations mechanisms; and
- Real estate values and resale potential.
The Collaborative Workshop was held on October 3, 2015.
Commitments - Phase 2 of the Approach
- Submit and release the report, all transcripts of material produced and a petition filed by the Committee of citizens living in Malartic’s southern railway sector during the Phase 2 Collaborative Workshop.
All documents were submitted on October 30, 2015.
- Promptly create a good neighbourliness working group with the objective of developing a memorandum of understanding to eliminate, mitigate or compensate for the impact Canadian Malartic Mine’s operations may have. (In progress)
A meeting with the Town of Malartic, the Canadian Malartic Monitoring Committee and the Committee of citizens living in Malartic’s southern railway sector was held on December 15, 2015.

The action plan is being developed. Regular follow-ups will be released.
- Maintain communication mechanisms to disseminate information and gather citizens’ concerns:

A project charter was presented to the following organizations for comment and improvement (in progress):
- Town of Malartic;
- Canadian Malartic Monitoring Committee;
- Public Health Branch; and

Discussions on establishing a working committee that includes all relevant organizations and improving the project charter are ongoing.
- Release the environmental impact assessment on the 117 Road Deviation Project.
The assessment’s highlights will be presented during a workshop. Timing will depend on the environmental assessment’s schedule, which is determined by government authorities. The environmental impact assessment will be updated with answers to the final series of MSDEFCC questions and an enhanced version will be released. A public activity report will be prepared and submitted to the Québec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change
