Environmental + Sustainability

By reducing emissions, through disciplined operations and focusing on being a responsible corporate citizen.

Community Involvement

AV Terrace Bay is committed to increase its community involvement and creating long lasting partnerships.

Empowering employees and improving health & safety

We are aggressively targeting talent by strengthening collaborations with Colleges and Universities to address employee shortfalls, increase attendees in our Junior Apprenticeship program and offer more work placement opportunities. We will be attending job fairs and are in the process of launching a recruitment campaign that will include new marketing materials, and a campaign to a highly targeted online presence in various social media platforms and recruitment websites.

Empowering our employees and investing heavily in our operations has allowed us to reach milestones and achieve coåmpany goals of sustainability and cost reduction. At the same time we’ve reduced our environmental footprint while improving health and safety initiatives. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished and look forward to what the future holds for AV Terrace Bay.

Hand in hand with our recruitment plan is our continued development of our Health and Safety Policy with further training and the goal of no lost time accidents. Currently we are proud of the fact that we are over two years at zero lost time.
