TSMC is proud of the relationships it has with Aboriginal groups affected by the its activities and with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. These relationships are reinforced by agreements signed separately with the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach, Nation Innu Matimekush-Lac John, Innu Takuaikan Uashat mak Mani-Utenam, Innu Nation of Labrador, NunatuKavut Community Council, and by the Newfoundland and Labrador Benefits Plan and the Women’s Employment Plan.

The spirit of these agreements is embodied in the provision of mechanisms for meaningful participation of said groups in the TSMC Project so that socio-economic benefits flow to them, that their traditional activities and knowledge are respected and that environmental impacts are minimized. These include: Aboriginal and Newfoundland and Labrador employment and training measures during the construction and operations phases; accommodations for culturally- and gender- specific needs; targets and processes that encourage and facilitate the participation of Aboriginal and Newfoundland and Labrador businesses in contracting opportunities; environmental monitoring; and support of community initiatives. The foregoing are to be respected by TSMC and its contractors.

Proper implementation is essential towards meeting the objectives of these agreements, which is why timely and open communication, reporting, and the support and involvement in the joint management of matters important to the communities through a joint implementation committee and a health, safety and environment committee are a vital aspects of our relationships.

We are appreciative of the chance to see them flourish and grow.
