Pathways for Youth to the Labour Market

by Ron Saunders

For young Canadians, finding a career path that leads to a well-paid job is critical for their own well-being. At the same time, the continued prosperity of our economy relies in part on finding ways to enable our young adults to fully use their skills, knowledge, creativity, and learning capacity in our workplaces. CPRN’s project, Pathways for Youth to the Labour Market, launched in 2006, is identifying public policy issues and options associated with the need to provide young people with the learning opportunities and support from educational institutions and community-based services to help them in their pathway from school to a fulfilling career. This presentation highlights some initial key findings drawn from the five published studies.

Baffinland Announces Plans to Expand Definitive Feasibility Study to 18 Million Tonnes Per Year for the Mary River Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Nov. 29, 2007) – Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation (TSX:BIM) (“Baffinland” or the “Company”) today announced revised plans for completion of the Definitive Feasibility Study (the “DFS”) for Deposit No. 1 of its 100%-owned Mary River Project, located in Nunavut Territory, Canada. As previously announced, the Company had initially targeted completion of a DFS for December of 2007 with an initial production rate of 12.6 million tonnes per year. Due to, among other things, the cumulative exploration success at Mary River and the continuing strength in the global iron ore market, the Company has now determined to expand its initial targeted production rate to 18 million tonnes per year. As a result, the Company now expects the DFS to be completed in February 2008. In light of the planned increase in the targeted production rate, as well as the decision to make Steensby Inlet on the south coast of Baffin Island our preferred port site and the general increase in costs since the original May 2006 Scoping Study, the Company now expects the initial capital costs for the Mary River Project to be significantly higher than the estimate for the 10 million tonnes per year scenario set out in the May 2006 Scoping Study.
