Mining Builds Communities

Staying Apart, Standing Together: BC Mining Month

The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed the lives of every British Columbian. In BC’s mining sector, the pandemic prompted our members to take extensive measures to prevent transmission and protect the health and safety of our employees and nearby communities, while maintaining safe operations to keep British Columbians working.

We’re all in this together

COVID-19 has demonstrated the resilience of our industry, the commitment of our employees and the vital connections that keep our industry standing together and BC’s economy moving forward. Despite physical distancing, the pandemic has shown we’re all in this together—with our employees, our communities, and our indigenous partners.
