Mining and Indigenous Economic Development:

Tools for Communities in New Brunswick

Webinar on Thursday, March 3, 2022

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 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.

This webinar is 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.
