An Environmentally and Socially Responsible Mint

The Mint performs a duty that is essential to Canadians, and we don’t take that responsibility lightly. We use our unique position as Canada’s coin producer to support important causes, shine a light on historical figures and moments, as well as advocate for responsible sourcing in Canada and around the world — all while generating value to the Canadian economy.

The Mint is a recognized Canadian corporate leader in socially and environmentally responsible business practices (with multiple Corporate Knights Top 50 Best Corporate Citizens rankings) and will continue to prioritize its corporate-wide ESG commitment.
