Canadian Minerals Industry highlights top priorities at Annual Mines Ministers’ Conference

As Canada’s Energy and Mines Ministers convene for their 74th annual conference, a national coalition of mining associations is recommending several government actions to help unlock billions of economic activity across the country, address climate change, bolster reconciliation efforts with Indigenous peoples, and secure Canada as the world’s top supplier of sustainablysourced minerals and metals in an increasingly lower carbon global economy.  A brief submitted by the Canadian Mineral Industry Federation (CMIF) details several policy areas where provincial collaboration and action by governments can enhance Canada’s ability to attract new mineral investment and expand the mineral and mining industry’s vast socio-economic contributions to Canadians.
