The Iron Ore Company of Canada is Newfoundland & Labrador’s largest private employer with over 2000 workers across its operations. As such, mining is the main economic driver in the region and supports a sophisticated mining supply and service base. The mine and the mining supply industries offer challenging employment opportunities in exciting fields.

Enticing work opportunities exist outside of the mining industry, as well, and the local college and training institutions offer a multitude of short and long term training programs. Explore the education institutions here.
