The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is releasing a new national poll that finds high levels of support for Canadian mining and increased understanding on the role Canada’s mining industry must play in producing the green technologies essential to a low carbon future.

For the past 12 years, MAC has worked with Abacus Data to assess public opinion on Canada’s mining sector. This year, support is at an all time high, with 80% reporting that they have a positive feeling about producers of minerals and metals in Canada and 78% saying they have a positive feeling about Canadian mining companies.
