The B.C. Regional Mining Alliance (BCRMA) is a regional partnership between Indigenous groups, industry and provincial government representatives. This unique collaboration aims to promote British Columbia’s mining opportunities internationally, with a focus on exploration projects.

We engage directly with the investment community to demonstrate how meaningful and productive partnerships among strategic partners are leading to world-class mineral development in B.C. We come together to share knowledge, best practices, success stories and lessons learned, creating strong partnerships and increasing certainty of process for proponents and potential investors.

Responsible resource development rooted in local partnerships is the new way of doing business – and BC is leading the way. 

We’re excited about the future. It’s a future that benefits everyone.
