The 2019 NMS Youth Ambassador Program includes a total of six (three male and three female) youth ambassadors between the ages of 19 to 31 years of age currently living in Nunavut. Participants have been identified by the three active mining companies in Nunavut.  

The Youth Ambassador Program will include presentations from the Amanda O’Connor (PDAC) about the Mining Matters program as well as from Doug Ashbury, NWT Chamber of Mines about the Mining North Works program. Included in their schedule are onsite visits to the Canada-Nunavut Geosciences Office, The Mining Records Office, and Resource Management of CIRNAC (formerly INAC) office as well as a tour of the City of Iqaluit. Representation of the three active mines (TMAC, Aginlo Eagle and Baffinland) will mentor the ambassadors on the Tuesday afternoon of the Trade Show to chat with the youth about the career opportunities in their mining and exploration projects.  

Thursday morning, come listen and participate as industry professionals take and answer questions from our Youth Ambassador Program participants in the Face to Face with Industry Session. Dialogue will include the ambassadors’ questions about Nunavut’s’ exploration and mining industry. The ambassadors will provide a brief overview of the program that they are participating in as well as having questions ready to pose to industry, Government of Nunavut, and Inuit organization representatives. Come join us in the conversation.
