TESTIMONIALS

"I participated in the CERBA 2021 Canada-Russia Mining Working Group today, this was my first event with CERBA.  The presentations were informative, but more importantly, I left with a sense of commonality; I found the Russian businesses challenges and initiatives mirrored those in Saskatchewan.  The networking session after the event allowed me to connect with persons I would have ever met – it allowed me to build contacts across the world with the similar resource developments in potash, uranium, diamonds, and oil."

Executive Director

"Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this very informative session."
