Annual Report 2021

A year in review of MAC activities and achievements.

As the world continues to address the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, there is no doubt that the pandemic continues to loom large over all facets of our lives. COVID-19 has impacted all industries to some degree, and Canada’s mining sector was not immune to its effects, but the past two years have highlighted the resiliency of the industry in the face of unprecedented challenges. It has been critical that supply chains stay open so that mined products are readily available for the people and businesses who rely on them. Globally, Canadian mining operations have withstood COVID-19 better than  many peers in other jurisdictions, with companies adapting their health and safety policies to accommodate risks, build confidence, and ultimately return to production with comparably limited disruption. As people and their families continue to get vaccinated and follow public health guidelines, there is optimism in the mining sector that a return to normalcy may be ahead in 2022.

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.
