Canada is one of the largest mining nations in the world, producing more than 60 minerals and metals. The mining industry is a major player in the economy and generates nearly five percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product. According to the Mining Association of Canada, there are approximately 380,000 people across Canada who work in mining and mineral processing industries. Canada also has one of the largest mining supply sectors globally with more than 3,400 companies that supply engineering, geotechnical, environmental, financial and other 
services to the mining operations. Women and men who work in mining enjoy the highest wages and salaries of all industrial sectors in Canada with an annual average pay exceeding $110,000.


The Mining Industry Resources Council has an informative website that can help young people decide if a career in mining is for them. The Mining Career Quiz will match skills and interests with career options.
