With countries like Mexico and Indonesia introducing significant tax reform that specifically focuses on the Mining industry, many Board Members and Executives are left wondering which country is next and will such reform impact their mining project.

Join us April 3, as we begin the process of answering this question. Specifically, you will hear our panel of leaders in the industry discuss their perspectives on the following:

  • The lessons that can be learned from the media focuses on the tax governance practices of multi-national companies such as Apple and Starbucks and why it matters to the mining sector
  • The recent work of The Resource Revenue Transparency Working Group's on the "Recommendations on mandatory disclosure of payments from Canadian mining companies to governments" and why it matters to be transparent with all stakeholders in a mining project
  • If a mining company want to lobby a government or agency, what is the best approach and when should you start
  • How do you fit tax into a corporate social responsibility framework

Our panel members include:

  • Ross Gallinger, Executive Director, Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC)
  • Sandra Pupatello, Director, Business Development, PwC (formerly Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Government of Ontario)
  • Liam Fitzgerald, Mining Tax Leader, PwC

Sessions qualify as structured learning towards ICAO or other professional institutions' CPD requirements.
