Mineral Week 2023

It’s time to celebrate!

The world needs green critical minerals and Manitoba has them. Canada, as well as each province and territory, celebrates Minerals/Mining Week every year (usually in May). It’s time Manitoba joined in. MPDA hosted Minerals Week Manitoba from May 23 to 27th, 2023.

Join us by participating in MLA visits, becoming a sponsor, or host your own activity.

On Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023 the MPDA hosted a number of events at the Manitoba Legislature. They spearheaded the following initiatives:

  • Distributing custom made lepidolite keychains to each Member of the Legislature. The focus is on the fact that Manitoba hosts the only lithium mine in Canada.
  • Providing statements about exploration and extraction from Members for the record.
  • Meeting with Ministers, MLA’s and Deputy Ministers to introduce them to the opportunities of a robust dynamic mineral sector.
  • Hosting a reception at the legislature for MLAs, staff, deputy ministers and industry at the end of the day.
  • Displaying a diamond drill rig in front of the legislative Building

Minerals Week is relevant to every corner of the province, so we encourage you to consider hosting an event and become an active participant of planned MPDA events.

Minerals Week 2023 was organized by MaryAnn Mihychuk, MPDA President and Reem Hassan, MPDA Director.
