For more than 25 years, Cameco has been working with Aboriginal Peoples in northern Saskatchewan. The corporation's goal is to provide:
- a sustainable benefit through employment, education and training
- opportunities to develop business capacity and commercial entities
- robust community engagement, participation and understanding of our environmental programs
- strategic community investments that will continue to deliver benefits long after mineral resources are depleted.
The support of Aboriginal Peoples for it operations has helped Cameco become a world leader in the uranium industry and helped expand its operations into jurisdictions like Australia.
As a result of cultivating Aboriginal business relationships in trucking, catering, aviation, construction, mining, security, maintenance, and environmental services, today, no facet of the company lacks a contract relationship, and they’re constantly looking for new ones.
Cameco has placed the recruitment of northern and Aboriginal people at the top of the company’s recruitment agenda, particularly in its mining operations. Currently, Cameco is the largest industrial employer of Aboriginal workers in the mining industry in Canada.
