The following is a guide for Chinese companies buying or investing in a Canadian mining or oil and gas company, including international projects owned by companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Canada is a leading country for mineral exploration, mining, and oil and gas production.

Canada is one of the world’s largest producers of precious metals, base metals, iron, potash, coal, uranium and diamonds as well as oil and natural gas, and many other natural resources.

Canada has some of the world’s largest reserves of natural resources and has thousands of mineral and oil and gas exploration projects at various stages of development. Canada accounts for 14% of the world’s proven oil reserves, second only to Saudi Arabia. Canada’s oil sands have over 173 billion barrels of proven reserves and an additional 1.7 to 2.5 trillion barrels of probable or possible reserves.
