Mining development 

The Town of Rouyn-Noranda was born starting from the mining richness of its basement. The mining sector still occupies a prominent place in the economy of the City.

The importance of mining for development of the city of Rouyn-Noranda is undeniable, but these activities must be harmonized with other uses that take place in the territory.

To promote harmonious coexistence, the City established in spring 2011 a Mining Advisory Committee whose role is to ensure an open dialogue between the mining companies and the leaders of the land . The approach and tools developed by this committee have also been a source of inspiration for the revision of the Mining Act. The challenges of social acceptance of all mining projects are always based on the responsibility of developers.

Further information will follow when the regulation amending the Regulation respecting mineral substances other than petroleum, natural gas and brine and the development of government policy comes into force.
