Access to Capital

Capital Market Reforms

Canada is the global centre for mine equity financing, with the TMX accounting for more than 50% of all global mining financings in 2015. To ensure that we maintain our globally dominant status, PDAC works with securities commissions and stock exchanges to:

  • Reduce the costs of capital-raising in Canada
  • Expand access to wider pools of capital
  • Maintain investor confidence in Canadian capital markets through improved enforcement

These goals were identified by our membership during an extensive member and stakeholder consultation undertaken by PDAC in 2013. Based on this capacity allows PDAC to be a strong champion of structural changes to Canadian capital markets, as well as incremental reforms to the existing system.
