Ecosystem Map Version 3.0

We are excited to announce that the third version of the Battery Metals Association of Canada (BMAC) Industry Ecosystem Map is coming soon. This map is an all-encompassing visual depiction of the diverse and interconnected entities that form the battery metals sector.

The map acts as a detailed guide to the industry’s value chain, emphasizing the roles and relationships among various stakeholders. We at BMAC strongly advocate for active participation from companies to ensure their inclusion on the map, thereby reflecting the dynamic nature of the industry.

Our map is regularly updated to include new data and feedback, establishing it as an essential tool for anyone interested in the battery metals landscape. Whether you are a company aiming for inclusion or an individual seeking information, the upcoming third version of the BMAC Industry Ecosystem Map will be your comprehensive guide to understanding the complexities of the battery metals market.

Western Hub

Canada’s battery industry continues to grow at a rapid pace as is demonstrated by the recent announcement of investments by Honda in new EV and battery production, as well as partnerships with Posco Chemicals and Asahi Kasei for production of cathode active materials and separators.

Yet, far more development is still required to create a complete made in Canada battery value chain.

What’s more, these developments can provide for opportunities right across the country. So, what are the advantages for Western Canada, and which elements of a robust battery ecosystem can develop and thrive there?

These are some of the important questions that BMAC will be engaging the industry to assess. From exploring the opportunities to develop battery hubs to identifying other opportunities within the sector that Western Canada can take a leading role in, this work will be about not only highlighting but also quantifying the economic impact of key developments in the west.

Let’s seize this pivotal moment to position Canada as a frontrunner in the battery industry and attain our electrification goals. We welcome you to get engaged and join us on this journey toward powering a greener, more sustainable future for everyone! Contact us for more details.

Indigenous Perspectives into the Establishment of a Battery Value Chain in Canada

Our latest workshop, titled “Indigenous Perspectives into the Establishment of a Battery Value Chain in Canada,” served as a powerful testament to BMAC’s commitment to nurturing connections with Indigenous peoples, communities, and businesses. This event explored the potential within the battery value chain to respond to Call to Action 92, all the while respecting the principles of UNDRIP and recognizing Indigenous sovereignty.

The opportunity to listen, learn, engage in significant discussions, and jointly imagine a future that acknowledges historical injustices while fostering economic prosperity for Indigenous groups and communities was truly enriching.
