Finding a balance with environment, jobs and future resources can not be an easy task. If done well and with respect, youth may find potential careers in both drilling and geology here in the Yukon. We wanted to get a little insight from a few companies in the Yukon and were able travel on site to see for ourselves some of the challenges local businesses must endure, how they see their responsibilities and encourage youth to consider opportunities the industry brings to our north. The north attracts several industry players from drilling to mining, and youth are striving to make this a career choice, but at what cost to their children's future? With new technologies coupled with respect for traditional territories and their policies, the industry just may have a chance to find that balance between environment and industry. Nonetheless, and whatever side of the fence you may stand on, with care, youth will have new opportunities to develop their future.
