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.

New Mining Webinars announced for 2023!
