Following the announcement that a forum on mining royalties will be held on March 15th, 2013 in Montréal, the Québec Ministries of Finance and Economy and of Natural Resources have made available, on March 8th, a consultation document entitled “Le régime d’impôt minier du Québec”. This document includes information on the mining sector in Québec and on the operation of the current Québec mining tax regime.

The Québec Mining Association and the Québec Mineral Exploration Association as well as several mining companies, groups and experts will be invited to provide their opinion and suggestions on this question. The consultations will culminate in the forum on mining royalties which will be co-presided by Mr. Jacques Fortin (HEC Montréal) and Mr. Pierre Lasserre (UQAM-CIRANO).
