About CIM

The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is the leading not-for-profit technical society of professionals in the Canadian minerals, metals, materials and energy industries.

120 years of service
CIM was formed only 31 years after Canada was founded.  The Institute was incorporated  in 1898 by an Act of the Parliament of Canada as the Canadian Mining Institute. In 1920, it became the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, and in 1990, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.

CIM has three strategic goals:

  • to create, curate and deliver relevant, leading-edge knowledge;
  • to foster a robust, connected and engaged CIM community;
  • to expand awareness of the essential contribution mining makes to society.

CIM's members, convened from industry, academia and government, help shape, lead and connect Canada’s mining industry, both within our borders and across the globe.

CIM is a proud member of the Global Mineral Professionals Alliance.

I really feel inclusion means belonging, and certainly with the changes that are occurring at CIM and the direction we’re now moving in, it feels like a great organization to belong to.
