The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) has added two new components to its Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative to help curb the use of child and forced labour in the mining supply chain, and to provide the information needed to demonstrate the responsible sourcing of minerals and metals, the association announced on Monday.

Despite Canada having rigorous legal measures in place to prevent child and forced labour, this action was undertaken because MAC’s TSM initiative has been expanding internationally. These additions to TSM build on the programme’s commitment to continuously improve the social and environmental performance of the industry, the MAC said in a statement.
