Mining and resource-based industries are at the heart of the Timmins economy, and the local labour force reflects the demand for skills in this sector. In 2017, mining sector jobs comprised 14.5% of total employment in Timmins. Timmins employers draw skilled labour from both the city itself and the surrounding area. This region has the youngest labour force and the highest employment participation rate of the five major Northern Ontario cities, and nearly half of this labour force is bilingual. While natural resources are still at the heart of the economy, we have diversified to include other growing sectors such as health, government services, education and retail. You will find job postings spanning all of these sectors and more at the jobsintimmins.com portal.
