Saskatchewan can benefit from mining boom
Saskatchewan may have the upper hand in the mining industry as it continues to increase in demand.
Industry expert Martha Roberts says many jobs will be opening up soon.
"People in the mining industry retire younger. Along with growth in demand for needs for commodities around the world, this perfect storm brews, and we put it all together and the industry looks at hiring 100,000 workers nationally in the next 10 years," said Roberts.
Roberts says the market needs to bring in people who don't normally take mining job, particularly women and recent Canadian immigrants.
