About the Canadian mining landscape:

Canada is a global Mining Leader. The country hosts a diverse and rich endowment of mineral resources, a favourable tax regime for the mining sector, and public support to encourage exploration and mining activity. This is attracting world-class mine operators and suppliers of equipment, professional services and expertise in mine financing. The country remains the undisputed leader in responsible business practices and responsible sourcing and this will attract more and more foreign investment, which will contribute in growing a world-leading mining supply and service sector.

The interest of International companies in Canada is increasing. Not only does Canada produce over 60 minerals and metals worth nearly CAD48 billion, the country is a leading global producer of many minerals including those used in advanced battery technologies, such as graphite (5th) and nickel (5th) and is home to almost half of the world’s publicly listed mining and exploration companies. The Canadian government also recognises the importance of the relationship between natural resources and clean technology to the country's economy, and is supporting investments in the Cleantech sector.

Abundant mineral and metal resources, sustainable mineral development, sophisticated financial institutions, broad geoscience expertise, an extensive science and technology network, as well as world-class equipment, professional services, and mine financing expertise are all strengths of Canada's mineral sector. These key capabilities are increasingly attracting Australian companies from the whole mining Ecosystem to explore Canada’s potential, either for those interested in exploring greenfield opportunities, as well as those that already have a presence in the nation and want to expand their current operations or research new initiatives.
