The Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (C.I.M.M), originally known from 1898 to 1920 as the Canadian Mining Institute, was founded in 1898, to advance the interests of the mining and metal industries and of the people involved in them. Its activities have included the publication of The Canadian Mining and Metallurgical Bulletin, maintenance of a library and an employment service, presentation of the views of the institute tp various government bodies and the holding of annual general meetings. Local branches hold monthly meetings, usually involving the presentation and discussion of technical papers. The Ottawa Branch has functioned continuously since 1919.
