Skills shortages in mining a major barrier to Canadian competitiveness
In addition to a large endowment of natural resources from Mother Nature, Canada's strength in mining was also founded on its unique pool of qualified experts working in the industry. However, over the past two decades a skills crisis has transformed what was previously a competitive advantage into the sector's key challenge. A lack of local skilled professionals, a rapidly aging workforce, and antiquated immigration policies make it difficult for companies to fill vacant roles with qualified candidates threatening short and long-term growth prospects.
