Gearing Up Workshop

The Government of Canada’s Student Work-Integrated Learning Program is meant to bring industry stakeholders together to create new work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities for students to be better positioned to secure employment in their field of study.

Gearing Up is the new WIL Program for Canada’s mining sector. Led by the Mining Industry Human  Resources Council (MiHR), Gearing Up will create 850 new WIL opportunities in mining over four years. Wage subsidies up to $7,000 will be available to employers who create new WIL opportunities such as co-ops, internships, field placements, applied projects, capstone projects or case competitions.

MiHR and the International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII) are inviting minerals companies, supply chain companies, research organizations, professional service providers (as employers) and post-secondary education institutions to a workshop in Saskatoon on Wednesday, June 13th to explore and inform how the Saskatchewan minerals industry and education sector can work together more collaboratively, and create innovative new ways to support work-integrated learning for students.
