Distinguished Speaker Series:
Mining. The Future.
September 18, Explorer Hotel.
Pierre Gratton, President and CEO
Mining Association of Canada
Mining opened up Canada’s North: Yellowknife, Dawson and Rankin began life as mining towns. The industry provides >35,000 person-years of employment each year, ~$4 Billion in taxes and royalties, and contributes >30% of northern GDP annually. In the provinces the GDP contribution is closer to 3%.
No one has a better understanding of the importance of mining to the North in a national context than Pierre Gratton. On September 18 he will share his insight into the future of mining at a Distinguished Speaker Series lunch at the Explorer Hotel.
Mr. Gratton was appointed President and CEO of the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) on June 1, 2011. He is also Vice-President of the Raw Materials Committee of the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD.
