INTRODUCTION


M
ining industries are key to
future
economic
growth


Need access
to a qualified
workforce


Identification
of
industry
-
specific
labour needs
&
access to
current, timely & evidence
-
based local labour market
information
is crucial


PROJECT GOAL



This project proposes to
build that evidence
-
base by
producing a labour market forecast of the Mining
Industry Employment and Hiring Forecast for the next
decade for every Local Board region in Northern
Ontario



BACKGROUND





In February 2012
the North Superior Workforce
Planning Board in partnership with the Mining
Industry Human
Resources
Council (
MiHR)
released the first district/local level mining
industry employment and hiring
forecast



Building
on MiHR expertise and on the work
undertaken by North Superior Training
Board,
we
are proposing
a
similar forecast report for
each Local
Planning Board
in Northern
Ontario





PROJECT OBJECTIVE

To produce a customized
labour market

forecast report for each of

the 5
Local
Planning Board regions in
Northern
Ontario



will

include

2
,

5
,

and

10

year

forecasts,

broken

down

by

occupation,

for

three

scenarios

(expansionary,

baseline,

and

contractionary)*



will

include

the

MiHR

forecast

equations

for

the

province

of

Ontario
;

survey

findings

in

each

region
;

and

secondary

data

sources

(e

Statistics

&

other

data

collected

within

the

region
)





*

similar to report produced for the Thunder Bay region

PROJECT OUTCOME

A
Mining
Industry Employment
and Hiring Forecast report
for each of the
Northern
Ontario Local Board
regions


Each report will:


Identify
new, different and/or emerging human resources'
needs/gaps in the mining sector


Provide better coordination/alignment between mining human
resources' needs and providers of employment/training
services


Provide better coordination/alignment between workforce
development initiatives and economic/business planning
strategies


PROPOSED APPROACH WILL...


ensure

consistency

in

the

collection

and

presentation

of

labour

market

information



identify

overlapping

needs

&

issues

that

could

be

better

served

at

a

broader

Northern

Region

level



allow

for

better

identification

and

coordination

of

broader

approaches

and



provide

Local

Board

specific

data

to

help

guide

the

implementation

of

more

localized

initiatives

RESEARCH LEAD*

WHO IS MiHR?


A multipartite, industry
-
driven organization that brings all mining sector
stakeholders together to address HR issues


Recognized leader in identification and analysis of HR issues facing the industry


A catalyst for the development and implementation of HR solutions


MiHR PROJECT STAFF:

Martha Roberts, Director of Research will oversee all research activities and stakeholder consultations
related to the project

the day
-
to
-
day project management, and liaising with the project leads



*EDs of the 6 Northern Ontario WPBs will coordinate the primary data collection; incorporate all region
-
specific findings (within the MIWIN forecasting model); and assist with report writing

METHODOLOGY

Four
main activities in
each region:


1.
Literature review and analysis of previous
research findings;

2.
Survey of regional exploration and mining
employers, and support
services’
contractors;

3.
Construct and test a model to forecast regional
hiring requirements; and

4.
Reporting



METHODOLOGY
(CONT’D)


MiHR’s Mining Industry Workforce Information Network (MIWIN) system
was developed to produce forecasts of employment and hiring
requirements in the mining industry at the national and provincial levels



The MIWIN forecasting model uses a variety of factors key to anticipating
changes in employment in the mining and minerals exploration industry



The forecasts are for two, five, and ten year time horizons



Forecasts are presented using three economic scenarios for future mining
sector employment: contractionary, baseline and expansionary (reflects
highly volatile employment profile that characterizes the mining industry in
Canada)



MiHR will use findings from primary research in the industry (questionnaires
and interviews) for region
-
specific forecasts

SUMMARY

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?



Spin
-
off benefit:
as mining
is a very important
industrial driver of the
North’s economy, the
proposed localized
mining
-
specific
data will
also help
address labour
market issues in other
sectors
being
impacted by
mining.






Detailed

mining
-
specific

data

is

not

available

at

a

district

level
.

The

development

of

customized

regional

mining

labour

market

forecasts

will

begin

to

address

this

gap
.
