CMA works to promote discussion of the social and environmental impacts of the mining industry and we advocate for the rights of sovereign nations and indigenous peoples around the world in their efforts to protect their land and their livelihoods from harmful mining practices. We hold in the strongest regard that Canadian mining corporations should not violate human and environmental rights in the exploration and extraction processes. CMA members stand in solidarity with people negatively impacted by the Canadian mining corporations and work to make their stories known here in the local community.
CMA focuses on public education about the mining industry, fundraising to support causes in which efforts are made to hold mining corporations accountable, as well as involvement in grassroots efforts to organize community action for responsible mining practices. CMA collaborates with people and organizations who are working locally and globally to demand more equitable mining regulations.
