Commitment to engagement

Managing a contaminated site goes beyond removing harmful substances. It often involves citizens with concerns about the health and safety of their families and communities. Meaningful public involvement fosters trust and support for decisions. It also helps improve decision-making by incorporating local advice and knowledge into plans and designs.

Engagement is an important and valued part of the Giant Mine remediation process. The Project team recognizes the importance of understanding and considering Indigenous and local concerns, for the remediation of the site to be successful.

The Project team works diligently to inform the people of Ndilo, Dettah, and Yellowknife and listens to their concerns and seek their advice. This includes regular meetings with the Giant Mine Advisory Committee, which represents the interests of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation in the remediation process, as well as monthly meetings with the Giant Mine Working Group, which makes recommendations to the Project team about technical and operational aspects of the remediation plan.

The Working Group includes representatives from:

The team carefully considers input from engagement activities as it works to finalize the closure and reclamation plan.
