CALACS Panel on Canadian Mining Investments

To better analyze the economic impacts of Canadian mining investments in Latin America, this panel at the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies Annual Conference produced an in-depth review of how sub-national jurisdictions are managing the labour, taxation and business linkages from these projects in manners that are conducive to their own local economic development. The cases covered here were from Argentina, Mexico and Peru.
