2018 Year in Review

2018 has been a year of growth for the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR). We strengthened stakeholder relationships, secured new projects to better serve the mining industry, its workers and future generations of its workforce, and grew our own team to 20 people.

MiHR continues to identify and address the HR and labour market challenges facing the Canadian minerals and metals sector. Our new Gearing Up program launched this year to help secure a steady pipeline of talent. Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement program, Gearing Up provides wage subsidies to mining employers who create new work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities for post-secondary students. We also launched the Mining Professional Immigrant Network (M-PIN) in collaboration with the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) and Professions North/Nord (PNN). M-PIN aims to improve the integration of New Canadians into the Ontario mining industry.

But that’s just the start! View more stats and successes in MiHR's full 2018 Year in Review below.
