About us

Vision and Mission

We are a group of residents on Vancouver Island/unceded Coast Salish Territories (British Columbia, Canada) united by concerns that many Canadian mining companies are responsible for human rights violations, social degradation and environmental crimes around the world.

Our vision is a future in which all Canadian mining companies operating in Canada and throughout the world not only comply with international environmental standards and human rights, including indigenous rights, but also become world leaders in best practices that respect local communities and ecologies.

We engage in advocacy and peaceful action for change. In solidarity with other concerned peoples and organizations, we raise awareness about unethical international mining practices by Canadian corporations and their connections with investment, laws, and foreign policy in Canada.

Who We Are

MJAC is made up of volunteers, and includes representation from labour, church, environmental, human rights, regionally focused groups, and other movements. We are members of MiningWatch Canada.
