Designing the EU-Canada Mineral Investment Facility –

Workshop 2

The second workshop of the EU-Canada Mineral Investment Facility Feasibility Study will be held in Toronto, Canada on November 15th, 2017. The purpose of the second workshop will be to present and discuss capital access, investment and business opportunities in exploration and mining, engage and network with all relevant stakeholders including industry, public authorities, academia and civil society, and allow all key stakeholders to share their opinion on the design, function, and scope of the proposed EU-Canada Mineral Investment Facility.

The workshop will be a full day session held at the Westin Harbour Castle, located at Map to Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto 1 Harbour Square, Toronto, ON. Detailed agenda is below.


Which topics will the workshop cover?
Within the context of the strategic EU-Canada relationship, the workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about investment opportunities in both Canada and the EU as well as other collaboration activities ranging from regulatory dialogue to technology, and to network with key players. The workshop will also collect feedback and ideas on the proposed model for the EU-Canada Mineral Investment Facility, including the scope and functions, value proposition, funding model, governance structure, operating model and performance metrics.

What will we expect from participants?
The workshop will follow an interactive format where we will actively engage the participation and input of attendees. The agenda will include presentations, facilitated discussion, and networking opportunities. Some key questions workshops participants will be asked include: what is needed to deepen the EU-Canada collaboration in the sector, and how could the platform help? What is your perspective on platform scope that currently includes the extractive industries and all related sectors including equipment, technology, and services? Do you support the functions of the platform? Do you recommend enhancements to the proposed platform functions?

When can I expect more information on the event?
A detailed agenda will be circulated in early September, and pre-reading materials will be circulated two weeks in advance of the workshop.
