A proud legacy: Creating Aboriginal business development opportunities at Diavik

Robyn Ellison, M2M,
Right from the initial planning stages at Diavik, local Aboriginal communities have been widely consulted about the operation and impact of the mine. This engagement has led to the development of considerable employment, training and capacity-building opportunities. An environmental agreement also allows the Aboriginal partners to monitor Diavik’s environmental activities in a pristine landscape that is extremely precious to their culture and way of life.
