At Baffinland, we work and live beyond the Arctic Circle, mining iron ore at our Mary River property. Located in the Qikiqtani Region on Baffin Island, Nunavut, it’s one of the world’s most captivating and seldom seen destinations and we are looking for people ready to share, build, and grow with our company.
We are a unique company with a strong management team. Our leadership team has amassed specialty experience on northern mining projects from community consultation and permitting, through to operation. Our workforce brings together the modern practice of safe, sustainable mining and the enduring value of a traditional culture, which is rapidly advancing. The result is a work and community experience you won't find anywhere else.
The Permitting Specialist is responsible for providing support to effectively manage and implement strategies and programs as they relate to environmental compliance of Baffinland’s current approvals and help advance future approvals as the Mary River Project continues to grow.
