Suddenly, Nevada and Northern Ontario Are Very Good Neighbours

MineConnect

On the face of it, the Province of Ontario and the State of Nevada would seem to have little in common: Nevada with its arid desert valleys; Northern Ontario, in the Canadian Shield landform region, containing the majority of Ontario’s 250,000 freshwater lakes. Yet although roughly 3,000 km apart, Northern Ontario and Nevada are the closest of neighbours below the surface, united by mining and the efforts of MineConnect.

Bringing Canadian Mining Solutions to a Global Market

Mining Innovation Commercialization Accelerator (MICA) Network

When it comes to the future of mining, Mining Innovation Commercialization Accelerator (MICA) Network Director Chamirai Nyabeze says that the industry has become closely tied to the future of the planet itself. This is being driven by multiple factors including the transition toward green energy in mining, a global desire for a low-carbon economy, and ongoing demand for the minerals and metals that make the conveniences of modern life possible.

Atlantic Momentum Hits Home

Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is entering its third decade of operations as the foremost organization dedicated to supporting both businesses and owners in the Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador). ACOA rang in a new year alongside a remarkable new development for its home base. In March 2023, and with the endorsement of 17 former premiers and deputy premiers of the Atlantic provinces, the PPF (Public Policy Forum) commissioned a report titled the Atlantic Canada Momentum Index. In short, this report gives credence to an ongoing theory that, currently, Atlantic Canada is seeing a considerable upswing in key areas—at times, more so than any other part of the country.

Opportunities Abound for Provincial Tourism

Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick

The Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick (TIANB) is the premier organization for the assistance and benefit of both tourism and hospitality in its eponymous home province. The association is now celebrating its 40th anniversary, having gotten its start in September 1983 under its original name, Hospitality New Brunswick Inc. Before that, only a couple of local hoteliers and restaurateurs were registered on the patent, but the association was eventually incorporated under its current name in 1991, both to bring it up to speed with more modern organizations and to operate under a broader umbrella.
