Join PDAC President, Alex Christopher, as he provides a financial snapshot of the Canadian mineral industry with a look at investment trends before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we look toward a post-pandemic world, Alex will compare how and where exploration activity is rebounding in Canada, and what that means for our industry.

Learn about PDAC’s federal advocacy priorities, including critical minerals and supply chains, aimed at bolstering Canada’s position as a global ‘supplier of choice’ for the minerals and metals that are vital in our transition to a low-carbon, low-emission future.
