In Latin America, local governments don’t often reap the financial rewards of mining activities in their own communities. Still, they're on the front lines of addressing the social, economic and environmental challenges that result from those activities. This program helps them use their mining income to benefit everyone in their communities and plan for the future.

Many local governments in Canada know what it’s like to have communities near resource-related industry. Our municipal experts come those communities, and are sharing what they've learned about managing economic development and environmental sustainability.
