Ontario Mineral Tracker

WCS Canada created the Ontario Mineral Tracker to make it easier for people to know about mineral exploration that is happening – and to make it easier for people to make their voices heard if mining activity is not wanted.

The Ontario Mineral Tracker shares maps for all new proposed mineral exploration permits on a Facebook page, and through a weekly email newsletter. On each map, there is also information on how to contact the provincial government to share concerns and be part of decision-making about new mining activity.    

Other options to oppose unwanted mining

Submitting a comment to the Ontario government about a proposed new mineral exploration permit is one of the easiest and least costly ways to oppose unwanted mining activity at an early stage. However, there are other options to oppose unwanted mining activity.
