Annual Convention

Health And Safety Seminar

Workplace health and safety is a priority for the mining sector, and each year since 1964 the QMA organizes a health and safety seminar. The event attracts health and safety coordinators from many different mining companies, and offers an interesting and informative program. In 2018, the seminar will be held at Rouyn-Noranda, on September 18.

Québec Mining Week

Each May, Québec Mining Week showcases the mining industry throughout Québec. Thanks to the work of volunteers in all regions and the involvement of the Québec Department of Energy and Natural Resources (Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles, or MERN) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, a full range of activities is organized to help the general public learn more about Québec’s dynamic mining sector.
