The Diamond Bourse of Canada hosted various prominent members of the Canadian mining industry at its Toronto office for a Mining Meet & Greet on Tuesday March 3, 2015.

During the course of the event, Diamond Bourse of Canada President David Gavin addressed the attendees with the following statement, “Deputy Minister Peter Vician, Assistant Deputy Minister Deborah Archibald, distinguished guests, fellow members of the board, ladies and gentlemen; I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to the Diamond Bourse of Canada. The Bourse is a diamond and gemstone trading facility and we are an industry association that provides a variety of unique industry specific services. For example, we have a bonded warehouse facility, a loose diamond trading floor, a Sarine machine, as well as a fully equipped lab with a Diamond Sure machine kindly donated to us by De Beers, safety deposit boxes and clerical services to name a few.”

Mr. Gavin went on to say that the Bourse came about with the help of the Canadian diamond industry stakeholders, including the Ontario provincial government as well as the Government of the Northwest Territories.

“We have been in existence for six years now,” adds Mr. Gavin. “ We have a membership of 80+ members, made up of both local and international diamantaires. We are a relatively young Bourse as is our diamond mining counterparts here in Canada but we seem to be making ourselves heard. We recently accepted our induction into the World Federation of Diamond Bourses which has raised our profile and has increased our relevance on the world stage.”
