The Fort William First Nation are hosting their first Mining Conference “Plan for The Future” on Monday and Tuesday, March 25th and 26th at the Fort William First Nation Community Centre, 90 Anemki Road, Thunder Bay, ON.

The theme of the conference is “Building Training, Employment and Development Opportunities For The Future”.

The presentations and exhibits will focus on informing the attendees of job requirements and job opportunities for employment within the mining sector.

There is currently a lack of skilled labour and resources that the mining industry will require over the next few years.

This conference will unite band members, students and the general public with mining industry leaders, training organizations, and mining related companies.

Topics will revolve around the status of mining in Northwestern Ontario, academic requirements for various careers and trades, careers for women in mining, aboriginal mining involvement and resources available for employers and prospective employees.
