The Allard Law Executive Learning Program in Mining Law and Sustainability provides an overview of the legal and regulatory instruments that govern sustainable practices throughout the lifecycle of a mine.
The program offers a new framework for making business decisions — one that goes beyond the “business as usual”, and considers human and Indigenous rights, climate change and anti-corruption laws and regulations that advance sustainability in the mining industry.
By the end of this program, you will have the skills to contribute to the success of current and future mining projects with an understanding of:
- today’s complex legal and regulatory instruments that directly affect business operations, both in Canada and internationally
- the participation of Indigenous peoples in the mining sector, including Indigenous governance and law
- the role of corporate social responsibility and how CSR has evolved into a discussion of business and human rights
- Canadian anti-corruption legislation and international efforts that affect mining activities
- the role of mining in Canadian and international and climate change efforts.
