Québec Mining & Newfoundland and Labrador Mining 2021

November 23, 2021

Look at the Fraser Institute's Annual Survey of Mining Companies, and you will find Québec is a perennial top contender when it comes to investment attractiveness. Behind its consistency as a leading mining jurisdiction is a recipe of government incentives, skilled workforce, social license, and a financing ecosystem that make it a remarkably propitious region to mine. 

It also has the legal transparency and quality geological information database that enable companies to confidently explore the province’s rich endowment of minerals and metals, several of which are essential to powering the transition to a green economy. 

Drawing from over 80 interviews with the leading industry executives, Global Business Reports presents its annual guide to the different companies involved across the full value chain of Québec mining, including the government backed financial institutions, an innovation-led service sector, mining producers, and juniors operating across the Abitibi, James Bay, Chibougamau and Nunavik regions.

However, not everything is lost for the Andean country, and the mining sector presents growth opportunities.
