Upcoming events

NEW WIM Toronto Meeting April 5th, 2017 Noon at Norton Rose Office, Royal Bank Plaza, South Tower, Suite 3800, RSVP wimtorontochapter@gmail.com - space is limited!

The Women in Mining Toronto Networking Branch (WIM) is a lively and informal group who work across the spectrum of the mining industry. 

WIM traces its origins to 1969 when women in the industry were such a rarity that the handful of female geologists active then were deemed worthy of an article in The Northern Miner. 

WIM Toronto is in currently in transition - please stay tuned to our website which is undergoing a revision. News on strategic changes within the organization will be forthcoming.

Cathy Hume Chair and new co-chair, danièle spethmann P.Geo., welcome input, suggestions and the participation from WIM Toronto members and those of you who want to be part of the NEW WIM Toronto!

Please RSVP for the NEW WIM Toronto Meeting: wimtorontochapter@gmail.com - space is limited!

Hello WIM Toronto Members. Welcome new members!

WIM Toronto is rebuilding!


We are looking to grow a new, dynamic and visionary organization where women working in all the various areas of the Mining Industry can contribute and share knowledge, experiences and ideas. We want to build a robust network of women professionals and foster relationships with academia, science and technology, business, finance and government. Wherever there is a way to improve and build a best-in class team, that is where WIM Toronto is going to be.

Our Mission

Our mission is to advance a “pro-mining business, high-standards and best practices model” within the GTA. We seek to encourage women in all mining-related disciplines, students and professionals, to exchange, network, develop and learn. WIM Toronto also seeks to facilitate educational and professional opportunities for women in the Mining sector.

We want to focus on hosting events that will support our Mission, but also promote personal and professional development. We have a few ideas, but we would really like to hear yours!

So our first meeting is a call out to YOU!
