bullet Impact of Mining: Yukon Mining Supply Chain

Mining in the Yukon has a long history and the industry has long contributed economic benefits across the territory, but the nature, extent and value of the local supply chain — along with gaps in the supply chain that might be filled by local firms — are not thoroughly understood.

The purpose of this study is to better understand the economic impact of the mining industry within Yukon, as it relates to the local business community. Key questions addressed in the report are:

  1. What are the key activities along the mining supply chain for which products and services are required?
  2. To what extent do companies at all stages of the mining lifecycle use local firms to procure products and services? At what rate is this done? How much is spent?
  3. To what extent are local firms positioned to provide service to the industry? Are there gaps?
