The Mining Industry in Ontario is growing and in demand for educated and trained workers. 40% of the industry is retiring. 10,000 new workers need to be hired each year for the next 10 years to replace existing workers and fill new positions1. Not only does the industry need workers, it can afford to provide an agreeable wage. Average weekly pay for a mining worker in 2010 was $1632 which surpasses earnings of workers in forestry, manufacturing, construction and finance. This equates to $84000 which can lead to a comfortable living and retirement plan.
