The CDDA has its finger on the pulse of the industry. We deal with governmental departments and agencies, both to keep you abreast of the latest regulatory changes affecting your industry lobby governments as well as to lobby for the well-being of the mineral industry in Canada.
We keep various statistics of the industry, and foster affiliations with associations that have similar, but not the same, business interests.
We are extremely knowledgeable about the industry, and can be contacted confidentially about any matter. If we do not have the answer to your question, we will be able to lead you to someone in the Association who does.
We organize conventions for the industry’s benefit, providing opportunities for training, networking and social contact.
We keep our membership informed through a new blog that you can subscribe to, from the home page.
Our established committees are mandated to investigate specific needs for the industry. Through our committees, the CDDA scans the world for information on technical matters and health and safety issues, to keep the Canadian drilling industry a leader in the world.
We publish various training materials for our members and their workers.
