Mining Industry Human Resources Guide for Aboriginal Communities

Many Aboriginal communities are located within close proximity of Canada’s principal producing mines and active mineral exploration projects. That is just one of the factors which attract Aboriginal Peoples to companies now offering high wages, transferable skills and on-the-job training. Aboriginal Peoples not only help Canada’s minerals and metals sector meet its HR needs for current and planned mining ventures, but also provide companies with new perspectives and skills.
In fact, the mining industry is the largest employer of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. The Inuit, First Nations, and Mêtis have become essential elements in Canada’s mining industry labour force. With a much younger demographic, they are now being presented with tremendous opportunities in mining, as well as in a variety of other sectors currently facing skills shortages. That is why a growing number of Aboriginal communities are developing relationships and partnerships with the minerals and metals sector.
The Mining Industry Human Resources Guide for Aboriginal Communities is one of many services provided under the banner of MiHR’s Mining Attraction, Recruitment and Retention Strategy (MARS) project. This new guide is a user-friendly resource for Aboriginal organizations focused on developing training and employment opportunities for their communities and interested in learning more about employment in mining. The Guide highlights the benefits mining can bring to individuals and communities.
