Fiscal Incentives

Enhancing Provincial & Territorial Incentives

Provincial and territorial governments have a number of levers at their disposal to support the flow of capital to early exploration activities in their jurisdiction. PDAC works in partnership with regional industry associations to advocate for governments to sustain and enhance those incentives during cyclical downturns.

PDAC applauds those jurisdictions that, between 2012 and 2016, took concrete action to support mineral exploration in Canada. Their actions are highlighted in green text in this table.

A summary of all the supports for early-stage exploration, provided by jurisdictions in Canada, is available from the links on the side of this web-page.
