Energy & Mines Ministers Conference

Each year, Ministers responsible for mining and energy from every jurisdiction in Canada meet to discuss how to support a responsible and competitive industry that contributes to the sustainable development of local communities and the country as a whole. As one of the co-chairs of the Canadian Mineral Industry Federation (CMIF), a network of mineral industry associations from across Canada, PDAC works collaboratively with its partners to submit an annual policy brief to Energy & Mines Ministers Conference (EMMC) outlining the key risks and opportunities facing the industry, and what actions governments could take in response.

In the 2017 brief submitted by CMIF, six policy areas were detailed for provincial collaboration and action by governments to enhance Canada’s ability to attract new mineral investment and expand the mineral and mining industry’s vast socio-economic contributions to Canadians. Read the brief.
