Mining in the Northwest Territories

The north of Canada holds immense untapped geological potential, attracting direct investors and corporate attention. Ongoing exploration and development efforts are actively taking place in the region.

The north of Canada offers surprising opportunities for diverse industries, contributing to a strong and vibrant economy. The Invest Canada North Initiative highlights the advantages of working in the region and fosters collaborative relationships with Indigenous landowners and the government.

The Northwest Territories, in particular, stands out for its remarkable female representation in the industry. It is a place that recognizes talent and provides unique opportunities, as seen in the appointment of the first female president of a diamond mine in the region.

ESG practices in the Yukon and Northwest Territories prioritize indigenous involvement, considering it a primary means to de-risk and advance projects with a strong social license.
