Local and regional procurement, community engagement and reconciliation

Efficient supply chains include more than just global procurement. Group purchasing opens the door to innovation for advancing regional supply chain capacity and Tamarack is exploring opportunities to help grow and support local and Indigenous owned businesses for the mining industry. 

We demonstrate our commitment to economic reconciliation with Indigenous peoples through the following:

  • Tamarack is a member of the Anishnawbe Business Professionals Association (ABPA)

  • Our largest investor and collaborator is an Indigenous Economic Development Corporation – Des Nedhe Development Group. We also work with other Indigenous companies such as Creative Fire.

  • Tamarack has invested in educating and training staff on Indigenous relations in Canada.

  • Tamarack acknowledges the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #92 for Business and Reconciliation.​

  • Tamarack acknowledges the United Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Tamarack Mining Services' head office is located on Indigenous lands and we acknowledge that the land has been inhabited by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years before us. We meet on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations, Anishinaabe Nation, Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. We recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Marble Surface
“I’ve worked with the Tamarack team at mines in Peru, Argentina and the US. Lee and his team have consistently produced significant AISC savings, even in technically demanding procurement categories. The key differentiator is how they work with the mining operations teams to find value, without compromising supplier quality and safety performance.”
