Diversity of talent – a solution to hiring needs and a stronger mining labour market.

Aboriginal Peoples in Mining

Aboriginal peoples are a key source of local talent for mining as many operations in Canada are located close to Aboriginal communities.

Women in Mining

Women comprise half of Canada’s population and about 48 % of its labour force, yet in the mining labour force, women represent only 17 %.

Immigrants in Mining

Immigrant workers tend to be highly educated and have transferable skills that are beneficial to Canadian mining employers.
