Newsletter- issue nbr 3 - April 2012
Message from President and CEO Dean Journeaux
The survival of the First Nations of the Schefferville area depends on a renaissance of the mining industry: the young members of their populations are increasingly numerous; their expectations for careers and standards of living correspond to their enhanced educational achievements; if they cannot find satisfying employment in the Schefferville area, they will have no choice but to leave it, and the ancient cultures and languages of which they are the custodians will, in a couple of generations, disappear forever; mining is the only industry capable of creating the large number of long-term jobs that they require.
In this newsletter, Paul F. Wilkinson, Senior Vice-President, Environmental and Social Affairs, describes some of NML's initiatives with its First Nation partners.
