In Canada, mines and potential mines often lie in or close to the traditional lands of First Nations people. When a mine is being considered or developed in such an area, important negotiations with First Nations are part of the process to ensure that their values, traditions and concerns for the land are respected. First Nations people can play a vital role as employees within the industry; therefore, opportunities for training and education are essential.
