Mining Matters is in Kapuskasing this week, hosting hands on info sessions with students from elementary and high schools. Manager of Economic Development, Andre Robichaud says despite the mining sector being in the natural resources field, the opportunities within it are still diverse. That includes jobs like environmental scientists, lawyers, managers, administrators, technicians and engineers.

The charitable organization has been teaching kids about the industry, how to get involved and the jobs the field brings. Robichaud says it’s all about giving kids an idea of what’s out there, whether that future be here in the north, or elsewhere.
