The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is the national organization of the Canadian mining industry. We represent
companies involved in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. Our member companies
account for most of Canada’s output of metals and minerals.
MAC’s functions include advocacy, stewardship and collaboration. Our goals are to promote the industry’s interests
nationally and internationally, to work with governments on policies affecting minerals, to inform the public and to
encourage member firms to cooperate to solve common problems. We work closely with provincial and territorial
mining associations, other industries, and environmental and community groups in Canada and around the world.
