Northern College, MiHR partner to improve enrolment, address worker shortage in mining

Northern College’s Haileybury School of Mines has received support from the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) to reduce financial barriers for mining students. By providing funds for scholarships for the Winter 2024 semester, MiHR hopes to help draw students to Northern and overcome the worker shortages projected for the mining industry. “With the regional base and precious metal industries in the midst of a significant boom, any incentive that can help draw the next generation of skilled mining professionals to Northern is good news for our institution, and even better news for the economic health of our region,” said Northern College President Mitch Dumas.
