Mining

Canada is one of the largest mining nations in the world, producing more than 60 minerals and metals, and ranking in the top five countries in the global production of 15 minerals and metals, including several critical minerals essential to new technologies, such as cobalt, copper, precious metals, nickel, and uranium. It has the potential to expand in lithium, magnesium and rare earth.

The mining industry is divided in 3 sub-sectors (exploration, production, suppliers), and several highly specialized parts of other sub-sectors (legal and financial services, education, government services, federal/provincial/territorial regulatory functions). Consequently, Canada has one of the largest mining supply sectors globally with more than 4000 companies supplying engineering, geotechnical, environmental, financial and other services to mining operations.

Our trade commissioners around the world and at regional offices across Canada provide Canadian clients ready to export with accurate market intelligence, access to key contacts as well as international leads and opportunities. Our global network works hand-in-hand with other government partners, regional economic development agencies and industry associations to help position its clients for success abroad.
