Canada is a leader in the global mining industry with its extensive natural resources and long history of mineral development. Over 1,640 mining companies are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and Venture Exchange (collectively TSX). Of the 9,500 mineral exploration projects held by such companies, 50% are located outside of Canada.

Canada’s stable and sophisticated financial, business, governmental and legal environment, as well as its policy of welcoming foreign investment, supports the vibrancy of the mining industry domestically and abroad. The Canadian mining industry is recognized for its technical expertise, which has resulted in the development of increasingly efficient methods of exploiting known deposits and discovering new ones.
