The free resource, developed alongside the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) and Professions North/Nord (PNN), will evaluate, test and even adapt engagement methods that will help bring immigrant talent into the industry. It will also provide training to human resources practitioners in the mining community,so that they can better identify and address potential employment barriers.

MiHR's senior director of employment and diversity initiatives Jennifer Wright said M-PIN will give new Canadians, immigrant-serving organisations and mining companies a forum for networking and to also learn more about Ontario's mining industry and job opportunities - all without charge.

"MiHR is also collaborating with TRIEC through M-PIN to offer 50 free licences to its Achieving Success training curriculum to help landed immigrants integrate into the Canadian workforce," she said.

"Alongside training and the removal of barriers, MiHR's new network aims to build strong, sustainable connections between immigrant professionals and mining industry employers," TRIEC director of immigrant inclusion strategies Debroy Chan added.

The M-PIN network includes face-to-face gatherings, webinar events and an online community hosted as a subgroup of MiHR's Ensemble: The Mining Diversity Network, which has been created to bring industry professionals, associations, indigenous groups and immigrant employment counsellors together to promote diversity and inclusion in mining.
