The United States and Canada hosted the third U.S.-Canada Critical Minerals Working Group meeting on July 28, co-chaired by U.S. Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Laura Lochman, and Assistant Deputy Minister of the Land and Minerals Sector of Natural Resources Canada, Jeff Labonté.

The working group discussed implementation of President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau’s commitment to strengthen cooperation on critical minerals supply chains as outlined in the Roadmap for a Renewed U.S.-Canada Partnership. Participants discussed ways to strengthen the Joint Action Plan for Critical Minerals to target a net-zero industrial transformation, and to support clean energy deployment, including batteries for zero-emissions vehicles, as well as stationary energy storage. They also shared perspectives on strengthening supply chains that utilize critical minerals, and reviewed President Biden’s Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains and the related 100-day supply chain review of critical minerals and materials and other key sectors issued in June.
