Northern mining suppliers heading to Montreal expo

This year’s Northern Ontario Mining Showcase will feature 46 companies at CIM EXPO 2023
The Northern Ontario Mining Showcase features mining service and supply companies from across Northern Ontario.

Forty-six of Northern Ontario’s top mining suppliers are travelling to Montreal this week to showcase their wares before an international crowd.

The companies will exhibit as part of the Northern Ontario Mining Showcase during CIM EXPO, the annual convention of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM), taking place April 30 to May 3.

The delegation is a pared-down version of the group that travelled to Toronto in March to attend the 2023 convention hosted by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC). It’s a joint initiative of FedNor and the City of Temiskaming Shores.

This marks the third year the Showcase has exhibited at CIM EXPO, which offers participants three days of technical presentations, networking opportunities, and a tradeshow.

With roughly 5,000 visitors coming through the doors, it’s considered an ideal arena for Northern Ontario companies to display and demonstrate their latest services, products, technology, tools and equipment for mining industry stakeholders.

Last summer, FedNor announced $412,000 for the Showcase to nearly triple its exhibition footprint in Montreal, growing the space to accommodate 60 exhibitors, up from 24.

Since it launched in 2014, Showcase activities have helped create an estimated 750 jobs and generated more than $85 million in direct economic benefits to the region annually.
