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, 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.

One of our key asks has been for all levels of government to sustain or enhance their fiscal incentives supporting early-stage exploration. PDAC applauds those jurisdictions that have taken action to support mineral exploration in Canada, highlighted in green text in this table.
