While Glencore was founded as a trading company in the 1970s, it has since inherited a strong Canadian footprint and history that dates back more than 100 years.
Today, our Canadian facilities form a significant part of Glencore’s global business. Our sites span seven provinces and we employ around 7,500 people, including contractors.
Our assets include nickel, copper, coal and zinc mining operations and projects; agricultural facilities; and a consulting business.
