THE ACTIVITY IN BRIEF
In April 2012, a Board of Trade study calculated the potential spinoffs of mining activity in the metropolitan region to be $25 billion over the next 25 years. While the mining sector is naturally more closely associated with Quebec’s northern territory, it generates significant benefits for several of the city’s businesses. The economy of the resource regions is closely linked to that of the Greater Montréal region.
One need only think about suppliers of machinery, university facilities, processors, or professional services to realize that a dynamic mining sector is beneficial to our economic base. Far from being in opposition as contradictory choices, the knowledge economy and that of natural resources are interdependent in many cases.
Declining global metal prices and the many political debates in Quebec have contributed to creating a climate of uncertainty in the Quebec mining sector. Now that the discussions surrounding the royalty regime and regulatory framework are behind us, we must breathe new life into this key industry for the city.
