Platinum Price in Canada


In Sudbury, Ontario, a significant platinum deposit was unearthed in 1888, marking the beginning of a remarkable era in Canada's platinum production that later had a direct impact on platinum prices in the country. This discovery triggered a surge in global platinum output, driven by the escalating demand for this valuable metal across various industries. Notably, the automotive sector reliance on platinum for diesel vehicle manufacturing fueled the demand throughout the majority of the 20th century, coinciding with the pinnacle of the North American auto industry. Presently, Canada consistently secures a position among the top five platinum-producing nations annually, while the demand for platinum remains steadfast without any indication of waning.
