Abstract The BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BC AMTA) was established in 2009 to form a training to employment partnership under the Aboriginal Skills & Employment Partnership (ASEP) for 148 positions at five mining companies in the northwest and central interior regions of British Columbia. The BC AMTA is fortunate to be creating these opportunities at a time when the fundamental components of success and lessons learned are available from its sister ASEP organizations in BC, the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

Laurie Sterritt, Executive Director and Laureen Whyte, Director and Vice President of the Association for Mineral Exploration BC will share the fundamentals of building the many partnerships needed to successfully train and place these Aboriginal people in long-term, quality mining positions.
