The Mining Association of Nova Scotia is pleased to share our new webinar "lunch and learn" series. While we would normally gather everyone together with our education conferences, the current public health guidelines prevent us from doing so safely. Many conferences and trade shows are going virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic, and so are we.

Check out our recent webinars below.
