  • How to fill the Labor Gap for Mining andConstruction in CanadaBy: Jose J. Suarez, M.Eng., P.Eng.Managing Director, North America Mining Industry Lead, Accenture
  • Coping with Mining Talent Shortages(The Challenge)• Replenishing the workforce with qualified talent will remain an immense challenge.• High rates of turnover erode consistency and quality, and undermine execution of long-term programs to improve performance.• Lack of manpower is affecting miners’ ability to execute their capital projects.• The aging workforce limits the industry’s ability to satisfy global demand. It is not unusual to encounter retirees—in their 60s, 70s, even 80s—called back to work. Australia illustrates the challenge: The median age in mining in Western Australia is 38 years, with more than half of workers in the 24 to 54 age range.• The Canadian Mining Industry Human Resource Council estimates that more than a third of the industry (61,000 to 71,000 workers) may retire in the next 10 years. The council estimates that the industry will need more than 140,000 new hires by 2021 if growth continues to accelerate. Copyright © 2012 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 6
  • Coping with Mining Talent Shortages(The Solution) Be the employer of choiceLeading mining companies will take a hard look at how they can differentiatethemselves as employers from other miners, and competing industries Develop a differentiated employee value proposition Leverage Improve retention technology and through employee automation engagement Develop talent through greater collaboration Copyright © 2012 Accenture All Rights Reserved. 7

  • What is behind the labour gap?Competition, demographics, immigration Dynamics of a truly globalized mining sector Continued and increasing global demand for resources Surge in global mining activities Work force that is much more transient than in other industries Job opportunities in Canada stand in direct competition with opportunities globally Demographic changes Ageing mining workforce Decrease in the number of students training within this field Inefficient immigration system Current system is not bringing selected candidates into the country fast enough Ongoing debate over who should have authority over the immigration system 14
  • How to overcome the labour gap?Invest, engage, rethink Be an employer of choice Investing in your corporate brand as an employer of choice requires an integrated approach to marketing, communications, HR and corporate social responsibility Offer best-in-class training, technology and opportunities for career growth Engage with the talent of tomorrow Invest in education and build strategic partnerships with schools Offer opportunities for students to gain experience through summer jobs, co-op programs, internship and graduate programs Rethink the immigration process Just as much as Canadian companies are competing for talent globally, Canada’s immigration system is directly competing with that of other countries Give more decision-making power to the provinces and industry Have the federal immigration system focus on security-related background checks only, allowing for substantially lower processing times 15

  • Immigration: Part of the Labour Solution While developing our domestic workforce is critical, many companies will need to recruit foreign talent to meet their immediate and projected labour needs.  BC Construction Council: Of the 320,000 new construction workers needed by 2020, half will need to come from overseas.  BC Labour Market Outlook: Between 2010-2020, BC will have one million job openings. One third of job openings are expected to be filled by immigrants. The USA and Latin America are key source countries for Foreign Talent  USA and Mexico – Canada’s top source countries for temporary foreign workers  Over 40% of Landed Permanent Residents in 2011 from the Americas have post- secondary education – i.e. diploma, trade certificate, university  USA, Mexico and Brazil in top 10 source countries for foreign students attending our universities and colleges http://www.workbc.ca/Documents/Docs/BCLMOutlook.pdf http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/releases/2012/2012-12-27.asp www.cic.gc.ca2013 © Bell Alliance Global Immigration Services Inc.

  • Opportunities to Recruit Foreign Talent Immigration programs that can help facilitate the recruitment and retention of foreign talent:  Labour Market Opinion / Accelerated Labour Market Opinion for High Skilled and Lower Skilled Occupations  International Trade Agreements (GATS, NAFTA, Canada-Chile/Peru)  Intra-Company Transferees, Working Professionals  International Experience Canada  International Graduate Work Permits  Federal Skilled Trades Program  Federal Skilled Workers Program  Provincial Nominee Programs  Skilled Workers, Strategic Recruitment Streams  Pilot Projects (i.e. Agreement for Canada-Alberta Cooperation on Immigration for trade occupations)2013 © Bell Alliance Global Immigration Services Inc.
