The global mining sector’s journey in 2018, while volatile, has continued to rebound. This progress is welcome and provides the opportunity for Canada to maximize its participation in the benefits this recovery presents. Now more than ever, it is essential that the appropriate policies and regulations be in place for the country to regain its competitive position. Over the course of 2018, there were numerous issues that required strategic attention from the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) and its members to ensure that much needed support for the country’s minerals and metals industry, one of the most significant contributors to the economy in the natural resources sector, were prioritized.
For more details on the topics discussed here, and on other aspects of MAC’s work, we encourage you to read the Annual Report in full.
