QUEBEC AND CANADA: MAJOR INDUSTRY PLAYERS
Since its beginnings in 1901, the Canadian aluminium industry has come a long way. In 2010, Canada produced 3 million tonnes of aluminium, making it the third largest aluminium producer in the world. Quebec alone accounts for more than 90% of Canadian aluminium production and plays a central role on the international scene in primary production and innovation.
The Canadian aluminium industry has carved out an international reputation for itself, thanks to its network of researchers at private and public research centres. Industrial chairs also help train specialists and develop new technologies. The industry stands out for its major investments over the next decade—$8 billion in Canada, $7 billion for Quebec smelters in the next decade — and large-scale projects.
The primary aluminium industry in Canada has reached a critical mass. It is one of Quebec's three largest industrial sectors in both production value and international sales volume. At a time when global economies seek to temper development with a sustainable vision for the future, the world aluminium industry is well-positioned thanks to its modern facilities and environmental performance. Currently, the industry's biggest markets are transportation, building and construction, and packaging.
