Helium is among the critical minerals that are essential for economic and national security. It is used in medical research, semiconductor manufacturing, space exploration, fibre optics and nuclear power generation.

Saskatchewan is Canada’s largest helium producer and has some of the best geology in the world for low-emission helium production. Helium deposits in the province are primarily mixed with nitrogen, which is not a greenhouse gas. This means the helium produced in Saskatchewan is among the cleanest in the world and has lower associated greenhouse gas emissions than competing jurisdictions that rely on natural gas production for helium extraction.
