CMG believes in early engagement and respectful dialogue with communities and First Nations within our project areas. To ensure opportunities from project activities are realized by all stakeholders we strive to provide employment opportunities and utilize local contractors and service providers when practical. In addition, CMG understands that responsible social governance must take into account the lasting impact of an exploration project. We take pride in setting an example for our peers, from simple gestures such as donating to local food banks to larger initiatives such as:
GLOBAL CHANGE FOR CHILDREN
Since its formation in 2008, CMG has been a proud sponsor of the ‘Global Change for Children’ foundation which runs entirely on the assistance of volunteers and donates 100% of its net proceeds to children’s causes worldwide. If you would like to learn more about their programs or would like to help please visit Global Change For Children.
When working on an exploration project near a rural community in Durango, Mexico we learned that the kids in the area had no access to a school house, so we set out on a mission to not only build one but work with the local government to provide the kids with a teacher and year-round education.
MALARIA HEALTH CLINIC
Mining and exploration workers often come into contact with communities in which malaria is prevalent; although it’s a curable disease, it also leaves behind the highest number of victims when not detected and treated in time. We first encountered the malaria epidemic while setting up camp in Guyana, and were immediately compelled to help stop its deadly cycle. In a combined effort with Vector Control Services and the Ministry of Public Health we were able to standardize a detection and treatment system in the area. We also helped establish a malaria health clinic which has played a continuous role in helping Guyana fight the battle against malaria.

CMG also participates in various events throughout the year that support other important causes locally and abroad.
