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.

PDAC 2022: The World’s Premier Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention will take place March 7-10, 2022 (dates are subject to change).

Our team continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on travel and in-person events, and the ongoing challenges it has created.

Although we are unable to confirm the event format at this time, we are exploring a number of options for the Convention, including virtual, hybrid and in-person. You can rest assured that the health, safety and well-being of all participants remains the priority in our planning.

We thank you for your patience and will provide further updates as information becomes available.
