BMAC evolved from our predecessor, the Canadian Lithium Association (CLA), which was originally started in 2019 by a group of lithium developers in the Canadian prairies. Since then, we have recognized the importance of engagement along the entire Canadian battery metals supply chain. Lithium ion batteries rely on numerous raw materials to ensure a thriving and robust industry. Many of these raw materials — including lithium, nickel, cobalt, silica, graphite, phosphate, and others — are abundant in Canada. Their development is paramount as we implement a successful Critical Minerals Strategy and capitalize on this tremendous economic opportunity. BMAC supports the entire value chain from raw materials through to end-use and represents a wide group of organizations focused on developing the necessary constituents of an expanding lithium-ion battery market in Canada.
BMAC is run by a passionate team and executive volunteers from the industry. Interested in volunteering? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our key focus areas for 2022 are:
Joining BMAC is a great way to gain insights into the battery metals space and support its development in Canada. The relationships that BMAC has forged both within its membership and broadly in the battery community is a resource to all members.
