Ontario Mine Rescue Report on Mutual Aid Agreements

Publication Type: 
Emergency Preparedness
In mining there is a risk that any emergency can escalate into a major or prolonged incident that will require resources beyond the capabilities of an individual mine operation. Mutual Aid Agreements (MAAs) give mine operations a tool to support their emergency response plans and services by sharing resources. This report provides guidance on mutual aid agreements to mining sites in Ontario, but is not intended to be a substitute for legal or other professional advice.
