Pam's presentation will focus on ‘Mining: Supporting Local and Global Communities’. Saskatchewan’s mining industry is a global and national leader in the mining sector and is a major contributor to the provincial economy. Recently the Saskatchewan Mining Association commissioned MNP to conduct a study of the economic and social contributions of the Saskatchewan mining industry. The results of the study demonstrate the importance of the industry to government and other stakeholders.
We hope you are able to join us!
