Energy & Mines Ministers Conference

Each year, Ministers responsible for mining and energy from every jurisdiction in Canada meet to discuss how to support a responsible and competitive industry that contributes to the sustainable development of local communities and the country as a whole. As one of the co-chairs of the Canadian Mineral Industry Federation (CMIF), a network of mineral industry associations from across Canada, PDAC works collaboratively with its partners to submit an annual policy brief to Energy & Mines Ministers Conference (EMMC) outlining the key risks and opportunities facing the industry, and what actions governments could take in response.

In the 2018 brief submitted by CMIF, seven policy areas were detailed for collaborative action by federal, provincial and territorial governments to address Canada’s declining mineral industry competitiveness and to support Canada’s ability to attract new mineral investment, ensuring that industry can continue to responsibly generate vast economic and societal benefits for Canadians.

The brief is available to read in English and French.
