The federal budget is finally out, and from the looks of things, Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) seem to be marveled or content about the maintenance of the flow through share system and also the auto renewal of Mineral Exploration Tax Credit. According to PDAC’s president Glenn Mullan, she stated that most of the necessities they require to push the mineral exploration and development sector of Canada have been met with in the recent budget. The new budget was announced during PDAC’s annual mining show in Toronto on March 5 as a way of celebrating its 150th anniversary of confederation , plus its quite a remarkable thing that the Mineral and mining industry have been part of things that molded Canada’s past, hopefully , they would still remain a part of its future.
PDAC also indirectly invested in a lot of non remote projects for over 11 years, plus they gave an addition of about $2 billion to northern and rural structures for the benefit of communities. Years back, Ottawa promised to aid Ontario with $1 billion for the sole purpose of bettering their transport system all the way down to the rural belt of James Bay lowlands. However, PDAC, also stepped into the picture by supporting the skills sector with the sum $50 million, which would come in handy after they have created jog opportunities from the mineral wells. Even the government has showed support to the company’s cause for close to four years now by supporting them with a sum of $1 billion, which they have constantly invested in matters of mining and gender equality.
Apparently, without this tax accreditation, there wouldn’t be much mineral resources, which means less revenue generated from mines.
