Miners are seeking reliable partners to support the costly renewable energy that will play a critical role in their net-zero plans.
Current global unrest and ongoing impacts from the pandemic have brought the security of supply of energy and resource products into sharp focus, not just for Canadians but our allies around the world.
Executive summary The transition to a low carbon economy, as well as changing technology and geopolitical stresses, requires the expeditious development of new mining, energy generation and infrastructure projects in Canada. There is a broad consensus that the timeline for the planning and approval process for new projects, (including “no go”) has to be shortened […]
We joined with 25 organizations, representing a wide variety of interests, in issuing a call to action for Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial leaders: They must act with more urgency to transform our electricity system, or Canada will fail to reach net-zero by 2050. A decarbonized and much expanded electricity system is the foundation required […]
When members of Congress speak glowingly of Canada, it is most typically progressive members envious of the nation’s gun laws or single-payer health care system. But many members who have expressed their frustrations with the U.S. mining permitting system have pointed to the Great White North as a model to be emulated.
By now it is a foregone conclusion that in order for net-zero to be achieved, the increased adoption of low carbon technologies is essential, with mining propelling the current seismic energy transition. Electric cars cannot exist without lithium, nickel and cobalt, nuclear energy without uranium, wind turbines and solar panels without copper, zinc, iron and […]
Provincial review launched last summer, but policy change depends on federal report
International scrutiny comes as Canada works toward new rules that could see release of treated water for first time
Canada’s oil sands mining industry on Thursday outlined proposals to release treated water from tailings ponds into northern Alberta’s Athabasca River, a move environmental groups say risks damaging one of the world’s largest freshwater deltas.
