BENEFITING INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
Hy-Tech actively seeks out ways to make positive contributions that bring long-term benefits to the communities where we have ongoing work. These initiatives take shape in a variety of ways including training, employment, participating in community events and in-kind support.
One example of this commitment coming to life is in Northern Saskatchewan. We work closely with Denison Mines Corp. to recruit Indigenous Peoples from local communities in order to provide ongoing employment opportunities. Our trainers provide hands-on driller’s helper programs which give new recruits the skills and knowledge they need to start a successful diamond drilling career.
In the past couple of years we have attended several job fairs including:
• Git’an’maax Job Fair,
• Gitanyow Career Fair,
• Waubaskang Career Fair,
• NEST Nisga Employment Fair,
• Tahltan Career Fair.
At these venues we aim to attract qualified candidates from local Indigenous communities to join our team, and to share with them the career opportunities that Hy-tech has to offer. These fairs give community members a chance to drop by to discuss how Hy-Tech’s culture of integrity, dependability, trust and mutual respect come together to bring peace of mind to our stakeholders.
Hy-Tech provides scholarships for Aboriginal youth who are leaders and role models in their schools and communities. With these scholarships we offer support to students who demonstrate a desire to enrich their community. For an application form or more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
