Digital Tools for Enhancing Indigenous Inclusion in the Mining & Minerals Sector


Ms Deb Shewfelt (Director of Workforce Development, Senior Geologist - North Rim / RESPEC), Mr Sheldon Wuttunee (CEO - Saskatchewan First Nations Natural Resource Centre of Excellence)

This talk will highlight collaborative industry-community projects in the development phase that foster the inclusion of Indigenous peoples in the mining and minerals sector. Indigenous Leadership teams aim to enhance the existing knowledge base around the Saskatchewan mining & minerals supply chain through the accessibility to innovative online tools paired with the support and assessment of success factors at the community level. With the unique layering of community, natural resource, land and marketplace information, Indigenous groups can visually interpret spatial information and can connect to opportunities, required education and skill sets.
