SRC engages with northern communities to facilitate meaningful participation in determining the best options for remediation. Discussions include community meetings and consultations with Aboriginal communities and leadership.


Environment and Safety

Safety is an overriding priority for SRC. We are working in conjunction with regulatory agencies to ensure the safety of workers and the public during the cleanup. SRC is focused on removing safety hazards that pose risks to local residents, the public and the environment.
