At the cutting edge of technology
Mining has always depended on innovative problem-solving, and today is no different. From data analytics and advanced robotics, to virtual reality and artificial intelligence, you’ll find cutting edge technology is part of almost every aspect of mining operations.
Committed to environmental sustainability
Mining is dedicated to climate change adaptation that includes plans to maintain air and soil quality, to protect wildlife and habitat health, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while adopting alternate and renewable energy sources.
Safe and getting safer
Whether you work underground or above ground, in the field or in the lab, modern-day mining in Canada is safe. Today, underground mining jobs in Canada are as safe as a construction job. As an industry, Canada’s mining companies are committed to the highest health and safety standards possible and always aim for a zero-incident work environment.
Partnered with Indigenous communities
Canadian mining companies are committed to working with Indigenous peoples whose communities are often located near mining operations. Building respectful, long-term relationships is important for the success of mining projects and has led to the industry being the largest private-sector employer of Indigenous people in Canada.
Growing in diversity
The mining industry can’t thrive without the efforts and perspectives of women, New Canadians, Indigenous peoples and other marginalized groups that have historically been underrepresented in mining. Mining is serious about increasing representation and diversity, and the industry regularly develops initiatives to increase participation from these groups.
