Staying Apart, Standing Together: BC Mining Month
The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed the lives of every British Columbian. In BC’s mining sector, the pandemic prompted our industry to take extensive measures to prevent transmission and protect the health and safety of our employees and nearby communities, while maintaining safe operations to keep British Columbians working.

That’s why Mining Month, held every year during the month of May, has gone online. Traditionally a time of community and industry-led events across the province, Mining Month is taking place online to recognize these important connections and provide the mining community and the general public with a forum to connect, support and inspire during this unprecedented and challenging time.
