Community Advisory Committee – Bécancour Industrial Park (BIP)
The Bécancour Smelter joined this committee, originally established by a group of companies in the Bécancour industrial park, a few years ago to strengthen its ties with the local community. The committee is made up of representatives from area businesses and the community and meets four times a year. Local residents present their questions and concerns, which are often related to safety and the environment. In return, the companies share information, commit to actions and disclose their results in a spirit of open collaboration. Because all the parties gain a better understanding of the expectations and interests of others, a number of situations have been quickly resolved without conflict.
