Quick Overview
The Canadian metals and mining industry includes mining (including coal), primary metal manufacturing, non-metallic mineral product manufacturing, and fabricated metal product manufacturing. It does not include the crude petroleum and natural gas industries. The industry (excluding bitumen) accounted for $42.0 billion, or 3.9%, of Canada’s GDP in 2005. Mining contributed 23.7% to the industry’s GDP, primary metal manufacturing, 29.2%, non-metallic mineral manufacturing, 13.4%, and fabricated metals, the remaining 33.7%.

The total value of all mineral commodities mined in Canada, including metals, nonmetals and coal, increased to a second straight record of $26.4 billion in 2005 compared with $24.3 billion in 2004.
