A strategic partner to the mining supply and service sector

Efforts that promote Northern Ontario’s world-class solutions on the global stage

Northern Ontario is home to over 900 mining supply and service companies. Since its founding in 2011, the Northern Ontario Exports Program has championed the global growth and expansion of this sector. We support strategic initiatives designed to open doors to new markets and raise Northern Ontario’s profile on the world stage. This is accomplished by working closely with industry-leading organizations such as MineConnect and Mining Suppliers Trade Association (MSTA) Canada.
