Impala Canada’s Lac des Iles Mine, located northwest of Thunder Bay, is a palladium operation with an underground mine and surface operations that employs more than 800 people. Currently, we are ramping up production to become one of Canada’s largest, lowest-cost and safest underground mines, producing a metal that contributes to a cleaner, greener and healthier global environment.

In order to meet increasing production needs and continue to be competitive, we rely heavily on our vendors and suppliers, most of which are Canadian-based. In 2020 alone, we purchased services and products from 300 Northwestern Ontario businesses and local Indigenous joint ventures businesses.

We seek to support local businesses and are proud of the positive partnerships we’ve built with our vendors and suppliers over the last 25 years.
