Mining and its supporting industries will continue to be important economic drivers in many of Canada’s Northern regions over the course of the next decade. While great potential for mining development exists, this potential must be approached in a balanced way. This report discusses a number of important factors— and their interrelationship with one another—that must be considered to ensure that both the positive and negative impacts of mining projects are fully understood. The findings from this report provide policy-makers, industry leaders, and communities with insight on steps that can be taken to support the future of sustainable mining in Canada’s North.
