Canada is one of the largest mining nations in the world, with nearly 20 percent of exports coming from the mining industry. With this level of potential, there’s profit to be had — but only for the most dynamic, adaptable mining businesses. From obtaining permits and forecasting fluctuations in commodity prices to keeping up with safety, land and pollution regulations, the mining industry is greatly impacted by a range of shifting factors. 

We work with more than 300 mining businesses across Canada and have an in-depth knowledge of the challenges you face, as well as the opportunities you should be seizing. Our tailored solutions are adaptable for whatever phase your business is in throughout the mining lifecycle — from exploration to remediation. We are at the forefront to ensure you are well-protected and well-positioned to reach your business goals.
