AME understands that an effective and progressive securities and taxation regime is a critical component to encouraging investment in mineral exploration and realizing successful developments of mine projects.

To remain internationally competitive, AME works closely with industry, government and allied business organizations to help ensure that taxation systems in British Columbia and Canada are predictable, transparent and provide greater certainty. AME has been a strong promoter of lower taxation and enhanced tax credits for the mineral exploration sector including the Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (METC) and the Mining Flow-Through Share programs (MFTS).
