Membership pledge form
On behalf of all REE stakeholders, the industry-led Network and this website are temporarily facilitated by the Minerals and Metals Sector of Natural Resources Canada. REE stakeholders include both private and public sector entities as well as non-profit agencies or association.
The Network will track REE research activities across Canada, establish an accessible inventory of REE projects, facilitate collaboration, promote and disseminate findings, identify research funding opportunities and produce communication products for broader audiences when appropriate. Additional resource materials may include related policy documents, regulatory and guidance materials and maps. The Network is intended to support the domestic REE research community with three objectives in mind:
- • Minimize the duplication of work
- • Maximize innovation in REE Processing
- • Seek synergies and stimulate research partnerships
In addition to improving the domestic R&D capacity for REE, this Network will also help foster collaborative activities with international agencies that are also focused on rare earth elements.
