Indigenous Affairs

The PDAC Indigenous Affairs Program works to support the development of positive relationships between communities and mineral exploration and mining companies, as well as increased participation by Indigenous Peoples in the economic opportunities generated by the mineral industry.

Key priorities for the PDAC Indigenous Affairs Program include:

  • Improving the ways in which the Crown implements its constitutional duty to consult and accommodate Aboriginal people.

  • Supporting efforts to improve the understanding of the mineral industry by Indigenous Peoples, and the mineral industry’s understanding of Indigenous Peoples.

  • The Indigenous Program at the annual PDAC Convention.

  • Advocating for social investments by governments to enhance Indigenous participation in the minerals industry.
