The report delves into the challenges confronting Canada’s mineral exploration labor market. It highlights a stark disparity between labor demand trends and post-secondary education trends in critical occupations such as geoscientists. This disconnection poses a significant hurdle, potentially leading to skills shortages as mining and mineral exploration sectors gear up for massive expansion in the years ahead.

An intriguing revelation from the report is that the majority of career seekers in mineral exploration lack exposure to the sector until post-secondary studies or after graduation – a staggering 62%.

Moreover, the report emphasizes the imperative of reaching out to students at a much earlier stage. It underscores the need for a K-12 outreach strategy to bridge the gap between industry recruiters, educators, and potential talent. Surprisingly, the report also indicates a relatively higher presence of women and immigrants in exploration-related roles compared to the broader mining industry.
