Gearing Up is the student work placement program for Canada’s mining industry. It brings industry stakeholders together to create new work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities to better position post-secondary students to secure employment in their field of study.
Led by MiHR, Gearing Up is creating over 1250 new WIL opportunities. Wage subsidies up to $7,000 are available to employers who create new coops, internships, field placements, applied projects, capstone projects or case competitions.
MiHR works with a national consortium of mining employers, service providers, industry associations and post-secondary institutions to implement program activities and inform how industry and education can work together more collaboratively through WIL.

We would like to thank all of the companies who have enthusiastically participated in the Gearing Up program. Applications are currently being accepted for Summer placements, beginning in April 2021.
The following studies showcase examples of how Gearing Up was adopted, what WIL placements are like, and the benefits to the companies, post-secondary institutions and students involved.
