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 2021: The World’s Premier Mineral Exploration & Mining Convention will take place from March 7-10. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing challenges it has created, we are unable to confirm the event format at this time. However, our team is currently exploring a number of options. The health, safety and well-being of all participants is our priority and these principles will guide us in our planning.

We will provide further updates in the fall. Thank you for your patience.
