Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation are welcoming back Nunavummiut employees to work at Mary River Mine.
In an announcement July 15, the company announced it is safe for Nunavummiut to return to work, stating all necessary approvals were made from the Government of Nunavut, including the chief public health officer Dr. Michael Patterson.
“Baffinland has put in place a number of measures to protect the health of workers and their home communities, and now that travel restrictions have also been lifted in Nunavut, I support Nunavummiut returning to work at the Mary River Project,” said Patterson.
The company is currently in the process of finalizing their logistics and employees are being contacted directly about the reintegration process and their return dates.
“We are looking forward to welcoming back our friends and colleagues to site,” said Brian Penney, CEO of Baffinland.
“Teams are now working both on site and within communities on reintegrating employees as soon as possible and ensuring the transition back to work is smooth. We thank Dr. Patterson and the Government of Nunavut for their support during this process.”
