Mining is a major industry in and around Timmins, Ontario. Attracting and retaining talent in this competitive employment market is an important objective for our Timmins operation.
We identified maternity and paternity benefits as a way of achieving our talent attraction and retention objective, in addition to being aligned with our inclusion and diversity objectives.
In 2021, Timmins created its Pregnancy and Parental Leave Policy, which offers top-up payments to employees on leave and extends benefits beyond those provided by government employment insurance. The policy is intended to support new parents, regardless of gender, in managing new family responsibilities. The benefits apply to eligible salaried and hourly employees.
Timmins will continue to evaluate the policy’s effectiveness and make changes required to provide supportive and competitive benefits.
