CIM Lunch Presentation Oct. 24th: Four decades, Four Continents, Four Copper Operations – a Personal Perspective on Constraints

The upcoming Canadian Institute of Management’s (CIM) lunch presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 24 at 11 AM at Room 100, 615 Booth St., Ottawa. An optional lunch buffet will be available for members and non-members for $10 (free for students) after the presentation.

Mr. Eltringham has been selected as a CIM Distinguished Lecturer for his innovative thinking and problem-solving techniques that brought the field of copper smelting to new levels of safety, production and development. The last forty years are reviewed using four different copper operations, on four continents, as examples of the changes in thinking approaches the industry has developed. The prioritization of effort and resources is a skill that has developed continuously and necessarily at an ever increasing rate. The copper smelting procedures of Zambian Copperbelt (Africa), Kennecott Mine (North America), Escondida Mine (South America) and Olympic Dam mining centre (Oceania) will be explained and compared to demonstrate how technology, luck, shrewd business acumen and a vision can produce outstanding results and be a great source of learning about the “game” of mining.

Please RSVP by October 22nd to Aartee Khandelwal, CIM Facility Coordinator by email (akhandel@nrcan.gc.ca) or via phone (613-995-4146). For members travelling by car, paid parking can be found on Booth St. or a parking lot is available on Beech St./Rochester for approximately 5$.

May 17th – CIM Ottawa Branch Lunch Speaker

You are cordially invited to attend our second CIM Ottawa Branch lunch speaker series that will be given by CIM Distinguished Lecturer, Ms. Barbara Kirby on the topic of:

Canadian Mining Certification Program: Recognizing and Retaining Skills.
Ms. Kirby’s presentation will provide an overview of the key challenges facing the mining industry in attracting and retaining a skilled workforce. It will highlight some of the key features of the Canadian Mining Certification Program and show how recognition of skills can help support employers to attract and retain skilled workers in a highly competitive labour market.  The presentation will also highlight the collaborative approach used in developing this pan-Canadian program, the first of its kind for the Canadian mining industry.
The presentation will take place on May 17th at 11 AM at Room 221, 555 Booth St., Ottawa. Individuals wishing to attend the presentation should plan to arrive at about 10:45 AM. An optional lunch buffet will be available for members and non-members for $10 (free for students) after the presentation.
Please RSVP by May 15th to Aartee Khandelwal, CIM Facility Coordinator by email (akhandel@nrcan.gc.ca) or via phone (613-995-4146). For members travelling by car, paid parking can be found on Booth St. or a parking lot is available on Beech St./Rochester for approximately 5$.
Biography
Ms. Kirby is currently the senior director of workforce development at the Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) where she leads key initiatives that contribute to the skills recognition and mobility of Canadian mining workers. Since 2006, her work with MiHR has focused on developing the Canadian Mining Credentials Program and in early 2011, the first group of certified miners was awarded nationally recognized credentials. In a career spanning several decades, Barbara’s efforts have primarily focused on forging strong relationships between industry and education, both in Canada and in developing countries. She has authored numerous articles on skills, learning and mobility in the Canadian mining industry and has been an invited speaker at many related events. Formerly the manager of accreditation and certification at the Canadian Aviation Maintenance Council, Kirby holds a master’s degree in economics from the University of Guelph.
 
Canadian Mining Certification Program Background
Labour market research conducted by MiHR estimates that between now and 2021, the industry will need to hire more than 100,000 workers to support growth in the industry and replace retiring workers. Between 20 and 25 per cent of these new hires will be required in skilled occupations that have, up until now, lacked a national recognition system; these occupations include production miners, development miners, heavy equipment operators, diamond drillers and mill operators. Furthermore, workers in these occupations tend to move from place to place at a much higher rate than workers in other mining sector occupations. The Canadian Mining Certification Program is helping address this challenge by providing a nationally recognized, industry-defined credential that will attract new workers and retain experienced personnel into these previously unrecognized occupations and to retain the skilled labour force.
