The world renowned PDAC Convention offers students a unique opportunity to connect with industry professionals from around the world. Build your network, learn about careers in the industry, and attend engaging presentations to stay up to date on exciting industry developments. 

Last year the convention attracted over 1,300 students from across Canada, the USA, and internationally.

We are in the process of adapting this program to a new virtual format. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.

The annual PDAC 2021 Convention—the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining event—will now be held virtually from Monday, March 8 until Thursday, March 11.

We have shifted our dates to weekdays in order to offer attendees an even greater opportunity to experience the virtual convention during the week. It provides an opportunity for us to add an extra half a day to the schedule, allowing ample time for attendees to access exclusive content, to explore virtual exhibit halls, to network within the platform, and the list goes on.
