Women In Mining Canada
Women in Mining Canada (WIMC) is a national not-for-profit organization formed in 2009 focused on advancing the interests of women in the minerals exploration and mining sector.
In collaboration with Canadian WIMC branches we support grassroots initiatives in the realm of personal and professional development, while providing a national voice within the global minerals and mining community.
Our membership is composed of passionate men and women who actively support the minerals and mining industry and represent a variety of occupational trades and professions.
As Canada’s leading organization for women in mining, WIMC envisions an industry that fosters, promotes and empowers women. We see a future where the possibilities, opportunities and dreams are the same for all, regardless of gender.

Toronto Geological Discussion Group
The Toronto Geological Discussion Group (TGDG) is a local learned society for geoscience and mining professionals. Our mission is to provide ongoing and relevant education and networking opportunities to our members and the wider public, with emphasis on geology, new deposit models and the application of exploration techniques. We are funded through our members, and through company sponsors who share our passion for geology.
Our community consists of over 200 members belonging to the thriving mining community centered in Toronto of geologists, engineers, financiers, mining support services and students.
Our program provides this community with bi-monthly late afternoon technical meetings, from September to May, and two half day symposiums annually. Attendance at TGDG events qualifies as part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD), required to maintain professional status as a Geoscientist.
We support university students through subsidizing their membership fees and attendance at TGDG symposiums. We also provide funding to students for field trips and other organized educational events that support the aims of the TGDG.
