Creating wealth while respecting the
environment and communities

We are dedicated to producing ever greener iron ore in order to create wealth, while respecting the environment and communities.

That is why we have implemented an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001, in line with our sustainable development policy.

An external audit process is conducted annually by an independent entity to certify our compliance.

We are also committed to the Mining Association of Canada‘s Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative. Being part of the TSM initiative reflects our own commitment to responsible mining practices in the following areas:

  • Community relations
  • World-class environmental practices
  • Health and safety of staff and neighbouring communities

The towns of Fermont and Port-Cartier, where we operate, are located in the heart of a large, wild natural environment. We are committed to preserving this natural wealth, its biodiversity, and the well-being and health of the people who live there.

Ensuring salmon protection on the Nipissis River

Atlantic salmon are abundant in the Nipissis River and their migratory lifestyle causes them to move upriver. Fishways are a means to help them bypass obstacles such as waterfalls and the quality of their design is directly related to the success of the annual salmon migration.
