This historical assessment reflects the technological, material cultural, social, and political history of Canada's coal industry. In its earliest phases, coal mining in Canada involved the exploitation of surface outcroppings and easily accessible deposits, requiring little technological infrastructure to support the work. With the rising demand for coal for transportation and industrial use, mining companies adopted more systematic and capital intensive methods which allowed them to exploit deep deposits and to increase productivity which made them more competitive. In recent years, changes in the market have led to the development of large, remote open pit mines that supply coal used mainly for generating electricity. Author: Del Muise, R.
