MINING INDUSTRY HUMAN RESOURCES
A guide for Aboriginal Communities
Many of Canadaâ€™s principal producing mines and active mineral exploration projects are located within close proximity of Aboriginal communities.
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 Canadaâ€™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 MÃ©tis have become essential elements in Canadaâ€™s mining industry labour force.
The Mining Industry Human Resources Council has produced this guide with the commitment and support of a project advisory committee that includes many Aboriginal communities and organizations.
