History

CIM was the result of individuals in the mining industry seeking a vehicle for lobbying for safety laws and workers' protection, as well as a method of ensuring the communication of ideas. Led by a very capable group of dedicated members, CIM soon came to attract new members from all across Canada.

In 2018, CIM marked its 120th anniversary, celebrating its growth from a small association to Canada's leading professional association for the minerals related industries, with technical Societies and local Branches across Canada and overseas.
