Jan. 31, 2023

OBA Natural Resources and Energy Law PROGRAM | 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

In 2022, the Canadian Government released a $3.8 billion critical minerals strategy and implemented a number of measures to support the strategy and advance the development of critical minerals projects in Canada. At the same time, the Canadian Government implemented a number of high-profile policy changes to reduce the influence of foreign state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in critical minerals. In this session, join our distinguished panel of experts from both the public and the private sector to explore:

  • The Canadian Government’s critical minerals strategy
  • Recent changes to the Canadian Government’s foreign investment policy regarding critical minerals
  • The Canadian Government’s recently announced amendments to the Investment Canada Act

Learn how these latest developments may impact you, your practice and your clients in the year ahead.
