Since 2012, the global mining and exploration sector continues to experience a slowdown that
is resulting in mine closures and the extension or suspension of major mining projects across
Canada. It is expected that over the next couple of years, firms will need to further diversify
demand beyond local and regional markets in order to survive and prosper.
