Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Thank you. Good afternoon. We appreciate the opportunity to speak with you today. Cameco is headquartered in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and is one of the world's largest producers of uranium for nuclear energy. The vast majority of this uranium, of course, comes from our extensiv

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Thanks, Gary, for your question. When we're fully operating, we are Canada's largest industrial employer of indigenous people. The last yearly stats we have show that the uranium mining industry in Saskatchewan employed, through full-time employees and contractors, more than 1,

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Certainly, the uranium mining industry is a big player in northern Saskatchewan. We're fortunate to have those great partnerships with the northern communities. We've been operating for more than 30 years. I can give you what is a clear example, I hope, of the importance of both

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I can certainly try to answer some of that question for you, Adam. It goes back to part of our comments to start this meeting. One of the shovel-ready infrastructure projects that's being put forward by one of our partner communities, the English River First Nation, is for a rec

Jonathan Huntington

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  It's something that we look at right now, as a uranium company, when we have to make difficult decisions on how we're going to eventually restart our operations. The last thing we want, and those northern remote indigenous communities want, is COVID to return to their community o

Jonathan Huntington

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I would say that we've been very fortunate that with the wonderful leadership at Cameco, we've been able to manage our company financially the best that we possibly can. There's no doubt, though, that the uranium market had its challenges before COVID came, and certainly COVID ha

Jonathan Huntington

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  We certainly covered already the number of employees who are tied to the uranium mining industry. We're very proud of the fact that we strive to have RSN—which is residents of Saskatchewan's north—be a significant portion of our workforce. We talked about how more than 1,800 peop
