The Aboriginal Program at the PDAC Convention provides a platform for discussion on fostering cooperative, respectful and mutually-beneficial relationships between Aboriginal communities and the mineral industry. This program brings Aboriginal communities and Aboriginal-owned companies together with the mineral industry to share experiences, exchange ideas and network.
