Canadian Arctic Reinvestment Options Paper

Several mines in the Slave Geological Province (SGP) are reaching their end of life. The Canadian Arctic Reinvestment Options paper (Options Paper) aims to generate discussion on alternatives to conventional mine closure. Using case studies from around the world, the Options Paper explores the co-development of mining revitalization projects in the North across five key themes: Ecotourism, Tourism, and Real Estate; Mining Innovation and Energy; IT Innovation; Research and Education; and Food Security. The examples are not suggested to be explicit, feasible options for the region, rather, the intention is to stretch imaginations of what is possible.
