On April 29, our recruitment and training program for Nunavimmiut (Inuit from Nunavik), Tamatumani, received the prestigious "Towards Sustainable Mining" (TSM) Award from the Mining Association of Canada during the annual gala of the Canadian Institute of Mines, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM)!
The "Towards Sustainable Mining" (TSM) Awards is celebrating excellence and leadership in sustainable development. It acknowledges companies, facilities and individuals that have implemented projects and initiatives to expand and promote sustainable development within the mining sector. The awards is presented in two categories: the TSM Community Engagement Excellence Award, which was won this year by our Tamatumani program, and the TSM Environmental Excellence Award, won by IAMGOLD Essakane SA (Burkina Faso).
We would like to congratulate everyone involved, directly or indirectly, in the development and deployment of Tamatumani's activities.
We are immensely proud to have more than 240 Nunavimmiut employees on our team!
