Raglan Mine: Company–Community Committee to Govern Agreement

Categories: Community Tags: ,

The agreement for the Raglan mine in Canada (see case study “Glencore: Raglan mine – Accessing royalties and profit-sharing mechanisms”
for background) is governed by the six-member Raglan Committee, comprising Salluit, Kangiqsujuaq and the Makivik Corporation representatives and three Raglan mine representatives.

The Raglan Committee is the official forum for Raglan’s Inuit partners to express their concerns in regards to the company’s past, current and future activities. The committee meets four times each year and addresses issues that may arise between the company and the local communities.

The results of all environmental monitoring are reported to the committee. Should mitigation measures not be acceptable to members of the committee, a formal arbitration process is in place, although this has never been invoked.
