The Future of Mining Skills Development


The Canadian Mining Work Placement Program (CMWP) is a critical component of the Canadian Mining Skills Development Strategy (CMSDS). The program provides wage subsidies of up to 70% of a worker’s wage to a maximum of $10,000 (up to $15,000 for equity deserving groups) to hiring organizations who offer meaningful placements to workers in support, operation and production level positions. The work experience enables participants to practice new skills and competencies acquired from recent and relevant occupational training and provides the opportunity to work towards obtaining certification under MiHR’s Canadian Mining Certification Program (CMCP).
