SRC recognizes that engaging local communities is vital to successful remediation projects. An important part of this engagement occurs though the Project CLEANS’ Community and Aboriginal Liaison who maintains working relationships with local residents and their leadership, as well as provides information regarding remediation activity.
Since 2007, SRC has been holding regular community meetings to provide updates on Project CLEANS and receive feedback from northern residents. Key topics addressed through community meetings include human and environmental health, rehabilitation options and potential site end-uses.
