Map of Clean Energy Resources and Projects (CERP) in Canada

The Map of Clean Energy Resources and Projects (CERP) in Canada is an interactive map for learning about Canada’s extensive clean-energy resources and projects. By definition, clean energy comprises renewable energy, electric vehicles, nuclear energy, biofuels, and carbon capture and storage (CCS). The latter (CCS) is considered as clean energy since it can significantly reduce global CO2 emissions resulting from fossil-fuel–based power generation and from emission-intensive industrial processes such as oil refining and the production of iron and steel, cement, and chemicals.

This interactive map is composed of several map layers, which show the location of clean-power–generating facilities, bioheat-generation facilities, carbon-capture-and-storage (CCS) facilities, clean-energy projects that are planned or under construction, clean-energy test centres, and clean-energy research-and-development projects, as well as the energy potential of biomass, geothermal, reservoir-hydro, river-current, solar, tidal, uranium, wave, and wind resources.

If you print out a map created with this application, download the master legend to select the legend themes appropriate to the map you have created.

Interactive Map of Indigenous Mining Agreements

Agreements between Indigenous groups and mining companies improve the relationships and partnerships related to exploration and mine development.  These agreements have also been successful in securing benefits for many Indigenous communities. The Interactive Map of Indigenous Mining Agreements shows where these agreements are in effect across the country and provides specific information on exploration projects and mines, Indigenous communities, and the types of agreements signed between communities and mining companies.

Minerals and Mining Interactive Map

This map depicts the location of Canada's principal producing mines for the given reference year. It includes locations for significant metallic, nonmetallic and industrial mineral mines (except clay products, peat, and most construction materials [most stone, sand and gravel]), coal mines, oil sands mines, and oil and gas fields across the country. Also depicted are the locations of significant metallurgical facilities across Canada. The data in this map are based on Natural Resources Canada's annual Map 900A – Principal Mineral Areas, Producing Mines, and Oil and Gas Fields in Canada. Pertinent information for each mine is provided, including operation name, owner/operator, commodities extracted, and on-site facilities.

This map also depicts the location of the top 100 exploration and deposit appraisal projects for the given reference year. The data in this map are based on Natural Resources Canada's annual Map of Top 100 Exploration and Deposit Appraisal Projects. Pertinent information for each project is provided, including operation name, commodity sought, and province or territory.
