Canadian Aboriginal Minerals Association - CAMA

CAMA is an Aboriginal, non-profit organization which seeks to increase the understanding of the minerals industry, Aboriginal mining and Aboriginal communities' paramount interests in lands and resources. Through increasing this awareness, all parties will benefit.

CAMA acts as an instrument for the advancement of Aboriginal community economic development, mineral resource management and environmental protection.

The Canadian Aboriginal Minerals Association is Canada's leading network of Aboriginal communities concerned and interested in the resources industries. The network promotes community to community learning, sharing and relations in a forum through our Annual Conferences. The topics are leading edge and address the practical, grass roots and legal parameters to help Aboriginal communities and industry decide projects.

Why attend CAMA events? As Canada's longest serving Aboriginal mineral sector not-for-profit organization, you will hear directly from community Elders, youth, women and men, leaders on issues related to resource development. You will hear from leaders from industry, communities and government on how to move forward creating benefits and certainty for all. You will hear from learned judicial and legal representatives who know the trends in law with respect to consultation, consent, title and agreements. You will hear the first hand experiences of youth, elders, hunters, trappers, fishers, our community scientists, those affected by resource development decisions.

The Canadian Aboriginal Minerals Association has been on instrument for positive change in Aboriginal community and mineral company relations. The transition has move from protests and litigation decades ago to communication and negotiation, where today there are nearly 400 benefit sharing and joint management agreements among community and industry partners. Since CAMA's creation by Aboriginal people a quarter century ago, there has been an evolution in discussions, agreements and the parties, all to their mutual benefit. You too can be a part of this positive trend.


CAMA is an Aboriginal, non-profit organization which seeks to increase understanding of the resource sector with all parties.

CAMA was formed out of the need expressed by Aboriginal communities. By establishing relations, negotiating practical benefits agreements, jointly addressing mineral exploration and development issues, and mitigating negative impacts as partners with mining companies, Aboriginal communities advance to economic self-sufficiency.

CAMA presents an annual conference on The Resource Industry and Aboriginal Community Development each year, which is the premier go-to Aboriginal minerals conference in the country.

Advocating an equitable participation in Aboriginal community, land and resource development for the benefit of all.
