In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic upended the world. This report illustrates the short and long-term effects of the pandemic on Canada’s mining labour market, describes the early response from the mining industry and identifies which segments of the labour force have been particularly affected. Further, the analysis places the COVID-19 pandemic in the context of historical volatility in the mining industry.

MiHR conducts labour market research for the Canadian mining sector to uncover important industry human resource (HR) trends and patterns. In 2021, MiHR interviewed three prominent members of the Canadian mining industry to see how organizations utilize different sources of LMI to make HR decisions and plan for their future workforce needs.
