Mining Supply and Services in Ontario – Sustaining 68,000 direct and indirect jobs study finds

In 2011, Ontario’s mining supply and services sector contributed $3.9 billion to the province’sCanadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Exportgross domestic product, and sustained around 68,000 direct and indirect jobs, according to to a new study published by the Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export (CAMESE).

CAMESE managing director Jon Baird said the study’s finding are historic, because economic contributions from the mining supply and services sector had never been studied to such a degree.

“Nothing was known, or next to nothing was known about the economic impact of mining supply before this survey,” Baird said.

The association partnered with PricewaterhouseCoopers to analyze questionnaires it sent out to 913 supply and service companies across Ontario.

The Pan Ontario mining supply and services sector economic impact study determined 41,000 people in the province are directly employed by mining supply and services companies, while another 27,000 people rely on the sector indirectly, as suppliers or service providers themselves.
