New Additions to Canada's Critical Minerals List in June 2024

Jonathan Wilkinson, Canada's Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, announced on June 10 2024 that the Critical Minerals List has been reviewed and updated.

Public consultations took place with provincial and territorial governments, other government departments, industry, Indigenous groups and other interested or affected stakeholders. An analysis was undertaken to review all minerals included in the 2021 Critical Minerals List and consider potential candidates for addition.

These analyses resulted in an updated Critical Minerals List that retains all 31 minerals from the 2021 list and an additional three minerals, namely high-purity iron, phosphorous and silicon metal, for a total of 34 critical minerals.
