About the Task Force:
The BC Mineral Exploration and Mining Labour Shortage Task Force was established under the provincial Labour Market Partnership Program in 2007. The Task Force is a broad sector partnership involving industry, labour unions, career information and employment service providers, educators/training providers, and government agencies. The intent of the Task Force was to develop a business plan and an HR strategy to address skills shortages, recruitment and retention challenges to meet the significant economic growth in BC’s Mineral Exploration and Mining industry. In the HR strategy – British Columbia Mineral Exploration and Mining Industry Human Resources Strategy: 2008-2012 – five long term strategic HR goals were developed in image and career promotion, attraction and recruitment, retention and turnover, education and training, and sustainability. The Task Force is supported by the Aggregate Producers Association of British Columbia, the Association for Mineral Exploration of British Columbia and the Mining Association of British Columbia.
