Much has happened over the past two years, with impacts from the ongoing pandemic and the invasion of Ukraine being felt on a global scale with both having brought the security of supply vulnerabilities into sharp focus for many countries and consequently accelerating the desire of Canadians to source and produce locally, with greater self-reliance. Our industry has a particularly important role to play in ensuring the supplies needed, both by us and our allies, are readily available and produced using the highest standards in the world. Our role in providing the raw materials essential to the global energy transition specifically has perhaps never been more critical. Canada mines some of the lowest carbon intensity mineral and metal products on the planet and can play a much more significant role in providing the materials the world needs to get to net-zero.
