New mining innovation centre to benefit mining, exploration and Yukoners

“Our government is taking action to create the right conditions for continued growth in the Northern mining sector, and to ensure that Northerners derive maximum benefit from the abundant natural resources in their territories,” said Harper. “Our government’s investment in this new centre will address critical skills shortages facing the region, while providing the citizens of the Yukon and the North with better access to the education and training that can lead to high quality jobs.”

Due to a shortage of skilled local workers in the region, Yukon mines are spending millions of dollars annually to fly workers in from other provinces, while local residents and Aboriginals are seeking employment,” noted the Prime Minister’s Office. “This added cost forces marginal projects to scale back or close.” Yukon’s mining industry is expected to need up to 1,700 new workers to meet its needs by 2022.

“Therefore, having a skilled local workforce improves the viability of Yukon’s mining sector by improving competitiveness and creating high quality jobs for Yukoners,” said the PM’s office.
