Canada had 6.6 billion tonnes (Bnt) of coal recoverable reserves, which accounted for 0.7% of the global total at the end of 2014. Around 53% of the reserves are of bituminous grade, with sub-bituminous and lignite-grade coal accounting for the rest and the majority of these are located in the western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The country produced 69.1 million tonnes (Mt) of coal in 2014 – up by 0.6% over 2013. However, its coal mining industry has been affected by weak global coal prices which forced coal mine producers such as Walter Energy, Inc. and Anglo American plc to put their mines on care and maintenance.
More than 90% of the deposits are scattered across the western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, with significant amounts of bituminous, sub-bituminous and lignite grades.
The Canadian mining industry is governed by several provincial government departments and agencies of the provincial governments and each province has separate governing laws regulating the industry.
