By 2021, there could be a new mine in Gogama. IAMGOLD and Sumitomo
Metal Mining (SMM) are assessing the potential to construct and operate
an open-pit gold mine with an estimated throughput of approximately
32,000 tonnes per day.
By Stephen Murdoch

For three generations, Centis Tile and Terrazzo have laid stone, tile, terrazzo
and concrete across Northern Ontario. To this day, the heart of the company
lies in the old-world workmanship that has always been one of the great
hallmarks of the industry.
By Stephen Murdoch

An employee who was authorized to use medical marijuana, was prevented from
working on a project on the basis of the risk associated with having someone who
may have been impaired working in a safety sensitive position.
By Kathleen Stokes

Hiring a lawyer is not usually at the top of someone's "To Do list," but there may
come a time when you, as a contractor, have no other choice. It is similar to the
excitement of choosing a tombstone. Not always inevitable and not always fun.
By Dan Leduc

Through gender specific programming and opportunities for mentorship,
the construction industry is hoping to get more women on job sites. Although
Canada has come a long way when it comes to the number of women that work in
construction, more needs to be done so that women don't
remain largely underrepresented.
