Managers of the Tamatumani training program at the Xstrata Nickel’s Raglan mine want help from Quebec’s Plan Nord to build a skilled Inuit workforce. About 18% of the company’s workers are Inuit and primarily come from a pool of young and largely uneducated applicants, who rarely arrive on the job with skills related to mining. Since Nov. 2011, Tamatumani has provided 52 Inuit with on-the-job training.
