About the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR)

The Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) is Canada's knowledge centre for mining labour market information. An independent, non-profit organization, MiHR drives collaboration among mining and exploration companies, organized labour, contractors, educational institutions, industry associations and Indigenous groups to identify opportunities and address the human resource and labour market challenges facing the Canadian minerals and metals sector.

One of MiHR's strategic priorities includes increasing awareness, interest and positive perceptions of careers in mining. The organization also identifies and addresses skills gaps, delivers essential and work-readiness skills to Indigenous peoples, provides a wage subsidy for work-integrated learning opportunities for post-secondary students, increases inclusion and diversity and promotes recognition of skills and training across the sector.
