Mining Industry Workforce Information Network (MIWIN)
The MIWIN project will:
- test and refine various analytical and forecasting models specific to the mining industry labour force.
- identify the occupational structure of the workforce.
- project the demand for workers by occupation and other key parameters over the two-, five-, and ten-year time horizons. Reports will be published on a regular basis, while custom reports will be available upon request. Ultimately, MIWIN will evolve into a web-based system that covers all provinces in Canada where mining is carried out. It will feature an on-line query and reporting capability that can generate forecasts of future labour requirements, based on various assumptions.
- Complete MIWIN studies for British Columbia and Saskatchewan (2008)
- Complete Ontario study (March 31, 2009)
- Expand MIWIN's capability to include other provinces by end of 2009
- Refine labour market forecasting system (ongoing)
- Develop technical architecture and system specification for online query function
- Launch Labour Market Information (LMI) web portal
