Gearing Up by MIHR

Gearing Up

Developing Mining Talent Through Work-Integrated Learning

Thanks in part to funding through the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program, the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) established the Gearing Up program to deliver 850 new work-integrated learning (WIL) positions in mining over four years. Through Gearing Up, MiHR is providing wage subsidies up to $7,000 to employers who create new WIL opportunities such as co-ops, internships, field placements, applied projects, capstone projects or case competitions.

This short course provides an opportunity to gather students, educators and industry HR recruiters for a half-day information and networking session to discuss the value of WIL, how our industry is currently supporting students in mining-related post-secondary programs through Gearing Up, and what steps can be taken to ensure opportunities are available for the next generation of Canada’s mining workforce.
