The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) is the leading voice of the mineral exploration and development community. With over 7,500 members around the world, the PDAC’s mission is to promote a globally responsible, vibrant and sustainable minerals industry. As the trusted representative of the sector, PDAC encourages best practices in technical, operational, environmental, safety and social performance.
The work of the association is carried out by a 36-member Board of Directors, 16 committees, and a team of permanent staff. In 2012, the Board of Directors approved a five-year strategic plan for PDAC. This blueprint identified three priority areas to focus much of its resources and efforts: access to land, Aboriginal affairs and access to capital. Considerable attention is also being allocated to finance and taxation, corporate social responsibility (CSR), human resources, student initiatives, communications and public affairs, as well as heightening our ability to host the world-renowned PDAC Convention.
The annual PDAC Convention is regarded as the premier international event for the mineral industry. It has attracted more than 25,000 people from 125 countries in recent years and will next be held March 4-7, 2018 in Toronto.
PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange is the world’s leading convention for people, companies and organizations in, or connected with, mineral exploration.
In addition to meeting over 1,000 exhibitors, 3,800 investors and 24,000 attendees from 130 countries, you can also attend technical sessions, short courses and networking events.
The four-day annual convention held in Toronto, Canada, has grown in size, stature and influence since it began in 1932 and today is the event of choice for the world’s mineral industry.
