The voice oF the Canadian Mining Industry Since 1935

Women in Mining

While Canada’s mining industry has long been a male dominated sector, strides forward are being made to promote greater inclusion of women. Mining companies across the country are increasingly seeing women in senior leadership roles and working at the site level, but there is still work to be done to ensure that their meaningful participation in the sector is prioritized.

October is Women’s History Month in Canada, and MAC is proud to profile women making a difference in the mining sector annually.
