Mining Industry


Canada is a world leader in the mining industry and as such, the sector benefits from dedicated public aid.

The challenges


Surface, underground and submarine mining, involves a significant number of R&D activities that are eligible for subsidies and tax credits. These activities can create a vital advantage in helping businesses thrive and grow.

Examples of eligible R&D activities


  • Creation of a specific mine design related to topography, local geology, deposit location, hydrology, tectonic stress regime, target deposit deposition and potential seismic activity
  • Optimizing mining production through improved extraction processes and technologies
  • Experimenting to improve products or knowledge in remotely controlled mining processes, geo-detection techniques or anaerobic digestion bacteria.
