Canada is a mining nation. The industry provides the raw materials for a wide variety of essential products and economic activity – including the components required for the digital tech that runs modern life and the renewable energy that will power it. It also provides jobs, infrastructure and economic opportunities in every region of Canada’s large territory, especially in remote communities in the Canadian North.
This series, supported by Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Minerals and Metals Plan, features interviews with a wide range of experts from within the mining sector itself, from the peripheral industries seeking to disrupt and improve its practices, from the communities it touches, from government seeking to set the best policies to support its sustainable growth, and from other key stakeholders. Mining is a resource sector that will be essential for the long-term. So Canada must do everything it can to be the best and most respected mining nation possible. This series seeks to define what that world-leading Canadian mining industry of the future should look like.
