Natural resources represent a major source of collective wealth. Despite the recent decline in prices, they still offer many business opportunities that must be seized at this moment. Now is the time to identify the most promising projects for the future and to invest in mining development so as to be ready to profit from rising resource prices. The new draft of the Plan Nord is consistent with this approach in that it recommends undertaking concrete projects in the short term. In addition, the prices and diversity in our energy sector serve as a key means of increasing our companies’ competitiveness.
By taking part in the Natural Resources Forum, you will able to:
- Explore various aspects of the many currently announced and upcoming projects
- Learn about the many business opportunities Northern development offers our city and its economic players
- Meet the key players in the Quebec natural resources sector and develop new business relationships.
The activity will be held in French.
