Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada
The Prospectors and Developers
Association of Canada (PDAC) is the voice of Canada’s exploration community,
with over 9,000 members who are involved in the exploration for and development
of mineral resources. Nationally, the PDAC works to ensure the industry has in
place the foundational elements required to sustain the viability of the
sector, such as access to financial and human capital and access to land.
Ensuring that exploration companies have access to as wide a land base as
possible is critical in order to increase the probability of exploration
success. Exploration success, in turn, is the first step in ensuring that
minerals and metals continue to be made available for transformation into the
products that make modern life possible. The PDAC also works to ensure the
industry conducts itself according to the highest possible standards with
respect to social responsibility, environmental stewardship and health and
safety, and is committed to supporting the meaningful and effective
participation of Aboriginal and indigenous peoples.
