February 26, 2019

Three Stikeman Elliott lawyers – Erik Richer La Flèche, Jennifer Honeyman and David Massé – recently authored two chapters in The Mining Law Review (7th ed.), of which Erik is also general editor. The chapters provide an excellent overview of how Canadian laws and regulations affect the mining industry while also serving as a useful guide to mining finance.

Topics addressed include the following:

  • The legal framework of mining in Canada
  • Mining rights, licences and permits
  • Environmental and social considerations
  • Operations, processing and sale of minerals
  • Royalties, taxes and other fees
  • Outlook and trends for the industry
  • Raising capital in Canada
  • Canada’s foreign investment regime
  • The TSX and TSXV
  • Mining taxation in Canada

With the cooperation of The Law Reviews, publisher of The Mining Law Review, we are pleased to be able to make this 26-page booklet available to our readers.
