Abstract: This paper comments on the regulatory regime at the heart of the environmental movement in Canada and focuses on the implications for mining companies arising from increased environmental regulation. A survey of senior environmental representatives from major mining companies is presented to identify management approaches that are used to reduce environmental risk and a typology is developed of Canadian mining companies based on the environmental structures in place. Finally, a checklist of structures essential to the success of any mining environmental program is discussed. The paper concludes that regulatory and public pressures have forced Canadian mining companies to considerably enhance their environmental performance. It is expected that these pressures will not abate in the foreseeable future.
