Mineral Exploration Survey

The Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) is a not-for-profit organization mandated to identify and address the HR and labour market challenges facing the Canadian minerals and metals sector. We collaborate with mining and exploration companies, organized labour, contractors, educational institutions, industry associations and Indigenous groups.  
MiHR is conducting this survey about the mineral exploration sector.  If you received an email about this survey it is because you have a connection with mineral exploration in Canada. Whether as an employer, worker, student, educator, or affiliate, MiHR would like your opinion on the issues and challenges facing the mineral exploration industry and those who work in this sector.
The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential, only aggregate results will be presented in shared reports.  None of your responses to this survey will be associated with you in any way.  Indeed, we will know nothing about you other than what you tell us by responding to these survey questions.
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of research ethics. This project has been reviewed and approved according to MiHR’s Research Ethics protocol. If you would like more information on this or other research at MiHR please contact the research team at research@mihr.ca or 613-270-9696.

The time to complete the survey will vary depending on your responses; it may be as short as 10 minutes or as long as 30 minutes.
As a thank-you for taking the time to complete the survey, you will be asked at the end whether you would like to be entered into a draw to win a prize. Prizes include an iPad Mini and a delegate pass to PDAC’s 2018 Convention. Please note: two draws will be held and one prize will be awarded to each winner arbitrarily (winners will not have the option of selecting a prize).
Please use the buttons at the bottom of the page to navigate forward and backward in the survey.
You are requested to provide answers to every question. In most cases there is an option for indicating you ‘don’t know’ or ‘prefer not to answer’.  The survey will not progress without an answer to each question.
If you need to leave the survey, you can save your responses and return by clicking  the ‘Save and Continue Later’  button at the bottom of the page.  To use this feature, you must provide an email address; a link back to the survey will be sent to this address.
