Mining skills shortage in B.C. in 2014 and beyond
Vancouver Sun
British Columbia is known as a world-class centre of mining excellence, and Canada's largest producer of copper, exporter of coal and the only producer of molybdenum. Mining has a production value of approximately $8.6 billion each year and currently employs over 30,000 people across the province. The B.C. government recognizes the importance of mining. The BC Jobs Plan has set a target of opening eight new mines, and expanding nine existing mines by 2015. This will be supported by the 850 mining and exploration companies based in Vancouver — including ourselves — which account for more than half of the mining companies across Canada as a whole.

How colleges and universities are helping students get a foot in the door
Toronto Star
As today's grads face a stubborn job market, college and universities are scrambling to prepare students to create jobs of their own — bringing a touch of Dragon's Den to the Ivory Tower. From start-up incubators where students get help to launch inventions, to programs that include a stint in a real workplace, higher education — even in some esoteric liberal arts fields — is putting a growing emphasis on teaching students to be their own boss.

Drone tech developed at University of Regina catches interest of RCMP
Leader-Post
The RCMP, Ministry of Highways and SaskPower are just a few groups in Saskatchewan who could use a good UAV. A group students at the University of Regina have spent the past three years working on the university's first foray into creating technology for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and what they've done has already caught the eye of the RCMP. Although the Mounties currently use UAVs to get a bird's-eye view of car accident scenes, the students have developed software that would also allow investigators to get precise measurements from the scene of a crash using images taken from the sky by a hovering drone.
