Ontario’s First-Ever Critical Minerals Strategy Positions Province as Global Leader

Premier Ford, Minister Rickford and Minister Fedeli announced Ontario’s first-ever Critical Minerals Strategy, a five-year roadmap that will unleash Ontario’s mineral potential and support a made-in-Ontario electric vehicle supply chain.

Ontario’s supply of critical minerals, processing capabilities and proximity to North American manufacturing hubs makes the province an ideal place for mineral exploration and investment, as well as a strategic destination for producing electric vehicle batteries.

The strategy complements other transformative government initiatives, such as Driving Prosperity: The Future of Ontario’s Automotive Sector and A Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan. Taken together, these initiatives will generate investments and jobs, increase Ontario’s competitiveness in the global market, and support the transition to a cleaner, low-carbon global economy.
