Potash and Agri Development Corporation of Manitoba
Social License & Benefit Agreement
The social license is defined as existing when a project has the ongoing approval within the local communities and other stakeholders or a broad social acceptance and ongoing acceptance.
To be part of the community, the region and the Province of Manitoba, PADCOM has corporate responsibilities that transcend operation of its business.
PADCOM needs to build trust leading to a social license.
PADCOM will constantly engage with the Local Government, First Nations, Metis and all surrounding communities to: – Build relations – Embrace beliefs – Embrace opinions – Embrace cultures – Embrace requirements
We understand that a commitment to social license is not a one time commitment. It will need to be maintained and revised.
PADCOM will ask that the local communities develop a community relations committee to meet with PADCOM on a regular basis. – To advise us on how we are doing – Where we can improve – What can we do for each other – How can we further help with quality of life, good jobs, businesses and spin off business opportunities.
To formalize how local residents can share and participate in the benefits and opportunities of the mining and beef processing projects.
