As part of its initiative called SHIFT: Changing the Face of the Canadian Mining Industry, the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) contracted Graybridge Malkam to conduct the Take Action for Diversity research project. This primary research aims to expand upon published research, by exploring industry-specific barriers to the inclusion of the following target groups in the Canadian mining industry:
• Aboriginal peoples
• Mature workers
• New Canadians
• Persons with physical disabilities
• Youth
