Canada: A New Frontier for Australian METS Companies

This free webinar is presented by the Victoria METS Export Hub as part of the Insights into METS Webinar Series.


Approximately 75% of the world's mining companies are headquartered in Canada.  In 2019, Canada was the 4th largest producer of platinum and titanium, and the 5th largest producer of gold and nickel, amongst others.  And Canadian mining investment abroad is significant, particularly in Latin America and African countries.

The opportunities for Australian METS companies are substantial, but the challenges of doing business in Canada (just as in any international market) should not be underestimated.

To help you navigate the intricacies of doing business in Canada, we are thrilled to deliver a webinar presented by Canadian mining industry stalwart, Don Duval, who represents the interests of Victorian METS Export Hub members in Canada.

Don will explore the challenges and opportunities for METS companies in Canada, as well as share his unique insights into conducting business in the Canadian market.

Join us online at 8am AEST on 06 July for an insightful free webinar.
