Fiscal Incentives

Canada is one of the only countries in the world that has put in place a diverse array of fiscal incentives to support the flow of capital to different exploration agents. These incentives help to sustain the exploration ecosystem in Canada, from prospectors and juniors to the service and supply companies that are a key source of industry innovation.

PDAC advocates for governments across Canada to sustain, or enhance, this array of fiscal incentives.
