Critical Raw Materials: Learn How to Do Business in Europe

At this in-person seminar, Canadian mining, processing, technology, and manufacturing companies will have an opportunity to learn practical steps to gain access to the European market and connect with European companies.

In the context of PDAC, learn practical steps for your company to gain access to the EU Single Market, hear insights form Canada - European Union trade experts and connect with other Canadian and European businesses in the raw materials sector.

At this in-person seminar, mining, processing, technology, and manufacturing companies will have an opportunity to learn about provisions of the EU-Canada Free Trade Agreement (CETA) and initiatives of the Canada-EU Strategic Partnership on Raw Materials that remove barriers to exporters such as simplified border procedures, free movement, advance rulings on the origin or tariff classification of products, investment in EU-based mining companies, common regulations, and country specific exceptions.

The seminar is organized by the European Union Delegation to Canada, in partnership with the Trade Commissioner Services, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Canada (EUCCAN) and the European Association of Mining Industries, Metal Ores and Industrial Minerals (Euromines).

This seminar is part of a suite of engagement opportunities offered by the European Union at PDAC. More information about other events, will be available soon.
