Our Committees

At U. S. Steel Canada, environmental stewardship is a core value of our company and an integral part of how we do business. Taking responsibility for the impact of our operations is fundamental to being a proactive corporate citizen.

In 2009, U. S. Steel Canada entered into a six-year Environmental Performance Agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Environment that includes that creation of Community Liaison Commitees (CLC).

Here you will find information about our CLC, which have been constituted to inform the community of our business and ongoing activities related to environmental improvements. .

Our Agreement

Our agreement with the Ministry of Environment is an acknowledgement that the local environment – and our community – are best served through a long-term cooperative relationship.
