Building Relationships with Communities

Teck prides itself on the strong relationships we build with communities. Engagement is an essential component in our regulatory approval and project development processes. We understand the importance of engaging, sharing information, and collaborating with local residents to protect the area’s resources, generate economic benefits, and support healthy and sustainable communities.

Community and Indigenous engagement is a fundamental part of the coordinated assessment process; there will be numerous opportunities to review Project materials and provide comments to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada, and Teck.

Indigenous Engagement & Participation

The Fording River Extension (FRX) Project is located within ʔamakʔis Ktunaxa, the territory of the Ktunaxa Nation and on lands of interest to other Indigenous Peoples. The Shuswap Indian Band, Stoney Nakoda Nation, Piikani Nation, Siksika Nation, Kainai (Blood Tribe), Tsuut’ina Nation, Métis Nation British Columbia and Métis Nation of Alberta have also indicated their interest in engaging in the coordinated assessment process to be undertaken for the Project.

Teck seeks to build strong, lasting relationships with Indigenous Peoples in the areas where we operate. To ensure strong, lasting relationships, Indigenous rights holders and stakeholders are identified as early as possible, and engagement activities occur throughout all stages of the mine lifecycle.

To learn more about Teck’s commitment to respect the rights, cultures, interests and aspirations of Indigenous Peoples, read our Indigenous Peoples Policy.



Indigenous Knowledge & Project Design

Indigenous Peoples have unique knowledge about the local environment due to their long and close relationship with the land. This Indigenous Knowledge is core to understanding and mitigating the environmental impacts throughout the mining lifecycle – including project design, developing and executing monitoring plans, and planning and implementing reclamation. Integrating Indigenous Knowledge about local environments is important to address impacts, enhance benefits, respect Indigenous interests, and strengthen relationships.



Relationships with Communities

Teck is committed to meaningful engagement with local communities about the FRX Project. We engage with communities to identify social, economic and environmental priorities and to define mutually desired outcomes and measures of success. Maintaining good relationships with communities is essential to facilitating responsible mining.

Teck begins engaging with local communities on our projects well before construction begins. Gathering feedback from communities on mutually defined benefits and potential mitigations to reduce impacts is a priority for Teck.

Engagement efforts to understand concerns and issues from potentially affected Indigenous Peoples, government agencies, local communities and the public began in late-2018 and will continue over the duration of the Project.

The assessment process is expected to take several years and will include multiple government designated opportunities for public participation and input. Teck invites your comments and feedback on the Project in between these official periods.
