The purpose of the Canadian Minerals and Metals Plan is to re-establish Canada as the foremost mining nation in the world. The Energy and Mines Ministers Conference launched this initiative in August 2017 and federal, provincial and territorial governments have led the development of the Plan, including analytical work and extensive engagement across all jurisdictions.

This presentation will bring mining sector players up-to-date following feedback from federal, provincial and territorial mines ministers on the Plan outline presented to them in August 2018. Discussion to date has focused on six priority areas: Unlocking Canada’s Resource Potential; Igniting Innovation; Providing Regulatory Certainty; Realizing Community Benefits and Supporting a Diverse Workforce; Advancing the Participation of Indigenous Peoples; and Capitalizing on Canadian Leadership in a Global Market. Engagement sessions with stakeholders will help validate the Plan elements and inform their development. The goal is to finalize the Plan in early 2019.
