Mining Development Tools
Mining and Indigenous Economic Development:
Tools for Communities
Cando is delivering a series of webinars to provide an overview of exploration and mining activities and how Indigenous communities can generate long-lasting business and socio-economic opportunities through mining procurement. Sponsored by Natural Resources Canada, these jurisdiction-specific webinars are designed for economic development officers, land planners, community leadership and others interested in understanding the mining sector.
Each webinar is unique to each region and aims to:
- Present minerals maps, existing minerals/metals potential and a description of the mineral exploration and mining activities and regulations
- Highlight the types of employment business opportunities, set-aside contracts for the procurement of goods and services required by the mining industry
- Provide leading examples of Indigenous companies and communities benefiting from the mining sector.
The webinars for Québec and New Brunswick are presented by Mr. Jean-Louis Causse, Economic Geologist, who has many years of experience with government geoscience surveys and mineral exploration and is well-known for delivering workshops explaining mineral development to Indigenous communities.
The webinars for the four western provinces - British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitobaare presented by David Lefebure, a geologist with industry and government experience who has delivered numerous workshops explaining mineral exploration and mining to Indigenous communities.
