Government Affairs

Now - more than ever - it is critically important that resource development proposals be aligned with Government policies and priorities to “rebuild better.” Projects must provide economic and social benefits and be planned and executed in a way that satisfies the expectations of important stakeholders including all levels of government.

PMO Global's expertise is truly global. Our Government Affairs Team is able to guide you through today’s increasingly complex requirements that come from all levels of government and all types of lenders. With practical experience gained from operations in North America, Africa, Asia, and beyond, we help hundreds of companies draft policies, apply for grants, surpass regulation requirements, and influence legislative frameworks. Our goal is to help you win the approvals you need for your projects.

Strategic, Innovative and Experienced

The PMO Government Affairs team has overseen the approval and execution of major projects in many jurisdictions, including Canada, Africa, the Far East and in the former Soviet Union. This is the kind of experience that matters when you’re faced with jurisdictional challenges.
