REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 4:00PM
MONDAY May 12, 2014
Please join us to congratulate our Weekend to End Women’s Cancers Team who has just been recognized with another award from The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for their outstanding efforts! Meet team captain Kate Armstrong and members of the team on May 14.
It’s time to kick-start our fundraising efforts for this year’s walk and our aim is to raise the $22,000 that will put our total at a cool $500,000! What a fantastic way to celebrate our 45th Anniversary.
We have designed some unique jewellery, made from Canadian silver and, believe it or not, slices of CORE SAMPLES from Canadian mines. $20 from the sale of each piece goes to our team. As a matter of fact we can have pieces made for your company using core samples from your own properties!
We need all of our members help to sell as many pieces as we can. At our May meeting learn all about the artist Wendy Stanwick “A Slice of the North”, who designed this jewellery and Myroslava Dubyk who put this all together for us.

The speakers for our May networking luncheon are Mary Carey and Jennifer St Paul Butler – Baffinland Iron Mines.
Baffinland is focused on the exploration and development of the Mary River Property, located in the Qikiqtani Region of Nunavut on Baffin Island. The Mary River Project consists of nine plus high-grade lump and fine iron ore deposits that can be mined, crushed and screened into saleable products. It is currently one of the largest mining developments planned in Canada, and one of the most significant developments ever planned above the Arctic Circle.
Baffinland’s Head Office is located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. In addition to its Head Office, Baffinland maintains a year-round presence at its sites at Milne Inlet and at the larger Mary River site, both of which are currently undergoing the construction phase in the development of the Mary River mine. Baffinland also maintains a community liaison office in Iqaluit, as well as in Igloolik, Pond Inlet, Hall Beach, Clyde River, and Arctic Bay.

Previous to this, she worked for ArcelorMittal, the World’s biggest steel company and fourth biggest mining company, in London, England and Luxembourg since 2006 as Head Editor for the ArcelorMittal Group. ArcelorMittal owns 50% of Baffinland and offered Mary the post in Canada. Mary has a long career history of finance, journalism and communications, and finds the challenge of building a corporate culture for a brand new company thrilling adventure. Two projects she has worked on so far are; Baffinland’s Cultural Awareness Training and Work Ready Program.
