Unlocking B.C.'s Critical Minerals Potential



Michael Goehring

Michael Goehring

Mining has taken center stage as the world recognizes that minerals and metals are essential to reach net zero by 2050.

What’s more, the shifting geopolitical landscape has prompted Canada and our allies to develop and onshore new, domestic supply chains of the critical minerals we need to meet both our climate and our security and defence objectives.

Fortunately, B.C. is well-positioned to be a leading supplier of choice to help meet the growing global demand for critical minerals. Our mines and smelters offer British Columbians and all Canadians a generational opportunity to grow our provincial and national economies, accelerate Indigenous economic reconciliation, and make a core contribution to global climate action. Michael Goehring will speak about B.C.’s critical minerals opportunity and what steps industry and governments must take to turn this potential into reality.
