Sudbury Advantage

We have the talent

Home to 165,000 residents and the largest integrated mining complex in the world, Greater Sudbury features nine operating mines, two mills, two smelters, and, a nickel refinery employing a combined 5,500 people. To prepare future generations of talent, our three postsecondary education institutions Laurentian University, Cambrian College, and Collège Boréal, are producing the well-educated bilingual graduates that go on to work locally and globally.

We are ideally located

Centrally located just 390 km north of Toronto, at the intersection of Trans-Canada Hwy 17 and Hwy 400/69, Greater Sudbury is just a one hour flight or picturesque four-hour drive along the shores of Georgian Bay from Canada’s largest city.


We have the industrial base

In addition to the mining and mineral processing industries based in Sudbury, our community is also home to the world’s most diversified mining supply and services cluster. Our cluster consists of more than 300 mining supply firms employing more than 12,000 people. These firms offer all the products and services the industry requires to design, build, operate, and maintain a smelter.

We are committed to environmental sustainability

Greater Sudbury is proud of our global reputation for environmental remediation and stewardship. Our community continues to work in collaboration with the mining industry, government, and academia to heal the landscape through our regreening efforts.
