Job Description

Director, Capital Markets

Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC)


Canada is a global mining giant. More mineral exploration takes place in Canada than any other country in the world, in part because of the fiscal incentives in place to encourage domestic exploration. This exploration takes place across the country, touching the lives of Canadians in all thirteen provinces and territories. Similarly, more mining equity finance is raised in Canada than in any other jurisdiction in the world, making Toronto a global centre for mining finance.

The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) is the voice of the Canadian mineral exploration and development industry. With a membership of over 10,000, the PDAC’s mission is to promote a responsible, vibrant and sustainable Canadian mineral exploration and development sector. PDAC is now seekinga Director, Capital Markets.

Reporting to the Senior Program Director, the Director of the Capital Markets program will support research and advocacy related to the financing of the mineral exploration industry (e.g. reforming Canada’s securities regulatory regimes) as well as related to the fiscal incentives that encourage mineral investment in Canada (e.g. flow-through shares).

Working closely with committees of the Board, and the PDAC team, the new Director will bring extensive knowledge in corporate finance and/or securities and/or taxation as well as a working knowledge of the mineral exploration and mining industry. The ideal candidate would combine knowledge of mining-related securities regulations in Canada and familiarity with the fiscal incentives related to mineral exploration and mining in Canada.

You possess a relevant university degree (e.g. Commerce, Finance, Business Administration, Law, Economics) plus more than five years of relevant work experience in the areas of corporate finance, securities or taxation. Collaborative in style, and with excellent communication skills, you are adept at presenting complex analysis in a way that all audiences can comprehend. Experienced at working with high-level decision makers, you are looking for an opportunity to further hone your skills in an area of vital importance to the Canadian economy.
