Mining Builds Communities


For BC Mining Week, we’ve partnered with MABC and MSABC to show how mining creates and supports jobs in communities.

Mining’s impact in communities stretches far beyond the confines of the extraction site. In this infographic, we highlight the jobs supported by mining at the mine site, smelter, port facility, nearby communities, local industry, convention centre and area, financial district, and all transportation in between. Job creation spanning multiple industries, government tax revenue, and infrastructure development are all by-products of mining and contribute to building communities. Mining alone supports 46,000 jobs each year in British Columbia.
