McCaw North & Mine Training Society

McCaw North has been a proud partner with the Mine Training Society (MTS) for the last four years.  In a short time our partnership has already resulted in the successful training and employment of a number of Northern Aboriginals (NWT Residents) who are currently working full time with our company.

Hiring Northern Residents has been a priority of McCaw North since 2008.  To achieve this goal, we have developed a human resources strategy in which training and development of Northern Aboriginals is a key component.  We have recognized over the last four years that working with the Mine Training Society has provided the platform on which our training initiatives can succeed.

Westarc

McCaw North’s Joint Venture Partner is Nuna Logistics Ltd.

McCaw North entered a Joint Venture with Nuna Logistics in 2010 creating Westarc Drilling and Blasting Services Ltd. Westarc was created on the mutual understanding that prosperity in the North is achieved through strong working partnerships
