Matachewan First Nation partners with mining companies for training purposes

The Underground Miner Training program, provided under the Matachewan Aboriginal Access to Mine Jobs Training Strategy (MAATS), has produced its second group of graduates, ready to start work in the mining sector.

The six new graduates will now move on to employment positions under Northgate Minerals Corp. and Dumas Contracting at the Young Davidson mine site in Matachewan. “On behalf of myself and my fellow graduates I would like to thank Matachewan First Nation, Northgate and Dumas for the valuable training and employment opportunities we have received,” said graduate David Batisse.
