No comment on UNDRIP. MAC’s Aboriginal Affairs Committee was formally established in 2013 as a means of fostering continuous progress in addition to the Impact and Benefit Agreements negotiated between mining companies and Aboriginal communities since 1974. These agreements have set out such commitments as education, training, jobs, business development and financial payments to help ensure mining projects bring long-lasting benefits to Aboriginal communities. In terms of employment, the mining sector has become, proportionally, the largest private sector employer of Aboriginal people in Canada.
