Supplying local labour to the mining industry on the Baie Verte Peninsula

Description 

There is a need for people with skilled trades and advanced degrees to be involved in the mining industry. This is true of the Anaconda Mine on the Baie Verte Peninsula. How can we make sure that people in the region are equipped to work in this industry? Young people need to have their talents developed at an early stage, and this could potentially happen as early as high school. What options are there for people who want to work in the industry, and how accessible are these options? Can human resource demands of employers be met by people in the region? If not, can we identify gaps in the supply chain of skilled workers? How can we make sure that people in the region are able to work in the mining industry?
