CMI Managing Director Tracy Weslosky comments: “With billions being earmarked for EV production we are seeing companies rush to access funds that will benefit from an online platform that offers real B2B solutions. Providing realistic supply chain solutions and investment capital for companies at this time is second only to securing the qualified professionals with practical experience and proven technology necessary to achieve these goals.” Executive Chairman and Co-founder Jack Lifton adds, “Discussions will include the West’s pursuit of national and regional security of supply and self-sufficiency in rare earths, B2B opportunities, and the challenges of China and Russia as suppliers and trade partners.”

The Critical Minerals Summit will be held at the historic National Club in Toronto from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Space is strictly limited. For more information go to To purchase a delegate pass, click here.
