The QMA holds its annual convention in June. Members have an opportunity to discuss a range of issues, while enjoying social and networking activities. During the convention, the QMA also holds its annual general meeting. In 2017, the annual convention will be held at Le Château Bonne Entente, in Québec City, on June 11 and 12.
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.
To review the year’s activities, the Québec Mining Association holds a special general meeting in December. Members and partners from the mining sector also have an opportunity to attend a series of talks and an end-of-year dinner. In 2016, this event will be held at the hotel Le Concorde, in Québec City, on December 5.
Québec Mining Week
Each April, 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. In 2017, Québec Mining Week will take place from May 8 to May 14, as of the Canada Mining Week.
Ground Control Seminar
Every two years, the QMA will be hosting a Ground Control Seminar. The next one will be held in 2018.
