We are one of the most active of CIM’s branches in Canada. Attendance at events is typically composed of 50% students, 40% industry and 10% retired industry. Technical presentations keep industry up to date with the latest projects in mining, current trends and provide additional expertise in interest areas.
We have a long-standing relationship with the University of Alberta. Current economic challenges and projected future labour shortages make it necessary to encourage our younger generation to attend events, participate in the branch executive, network with industry, enquire about future employment and discover what CIM has to offer.
We also engage our industry partners to support our branch endeavors.
