The Northern Manitoba Sector Council (NMSC) is excited to announce the hosting of Career Awareness Tours. This event is intended for education and training coordinators (not students), to highlight resource industry careers available in northern Manitoba. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has indicated that Canada is heading for the “perfect storm” in the labour market – a retiring baby boom, rising skill requirement, and an increase in jobs in the service and resource sectors.
Many exciting and rewarding careers are available within the mining and hydro-electric generation sectors. There is a wide range of career possibilities within these sectors at all levels, from exploration and field operations, to production and trades, management, finance and administration. Many companies offer high-paying permanent positions located in dynamic northern communities that boast modern amenities, northern attractions and high quality of life.
Our objective is to raise the awareness of regional career opportunities among northern students at the secondary and post-secondary school levels through career counseling at their organization.
Tours will entail presentations and facility tours of several of northern Manitoba’s key industrial employers and the schedule is as follows:
- Tour 1: Oct. 20 – Vale Presentation & Surface Tour Thompson
- Tour 2: Oct. 21 – Keeyask Site Tour (Manitoba Hydro), Workplace Essential Skills Training Centre (Keeyask site)
- Tour 3: Oct. 24 – UCN Tour The Pas
- Tour 4: Oct. 25 – Frontier Collegiate Trades Dept. (Cranberry Portage), Egg Lake Tour
Participants will be able to pick and choose times and locations that best suit their individual schedules. Transportation, meals, and accommodation costs will be borne by the NMSC and our partners. Tour registration information and agenda will be provided once you let me know if you are registering. As someone identified with an interest and expertise in increasing the awareness of our current and future labour market, we would be honored by your attendance. If you know of someone who would benefit from this experience, please let us know as soon as possible.
