Cancellation of the Proposed Mining in the Ring of Fire (Ontario)

The Ring of Fire is a large resource of mineral value which covers an area of approximately 5,120 km square in James Bay of Northern Ontario. Considering Ontario’s economic status is highly demanding, it was necessary for its stakeholders to identify vast economic investments for making it a global leader in economic status (Gross & Sirokvash, 2015). Proposing mining activities in the Ring of Fire was a great opportunity for Ontario to boost its economic development strategies through deposition of valuable minerals. Basing on the decision made on cancelation of proposed mining in the ring of fire (Ontario), there are a number of positive and negative outcomes, that I feel would have resulted as a result of implementing the decision.

Positive Outcomes

  1. Implementation of the proposition on mining in the Ring of Fire (Ontario) would economically benefit the entire nation. Basing on results from economic multiplier analysis, it is clear that development of mining procedure in the Ring of Fire would have an impact on the nation’s GDP, creation of employment opportunities (Chong, 2014) to reduce dependency ratio and increase in general government revenue.
  2. This was an enormous benefit both in long and short term estimated projects after development of Ring of Fire mining proposals (Hall, 2017). According to statistics, it would have generated up-to $9.4 billion within its Gross Domestic Product, generated up-to $6.2billion dollars for the entire mining industry in Ontario, created sustainability chances for more than 5,500 job opportunities on an annual basis and generated up-to $2 billion to the government revenue which would have in turn benefited both provincial, federal and municipal governments.
  • Thirdly, implementing the proposal would have addressed the prevailing deficit in Ontario’s physical infrastructure through capturing of value-added activities in Ontario. The Aboriginal community needs would have been easily sorted out through addressing of needs in the market labor by making the entire project of Ring of Fire a factor of national priority (Gross & Sirokvash, 2015). Moreover, the project would have helped create awareness on national progress and sustainability.

    iv.            On basis of projected social benefits, some of the substantial benefits likely to have been offered by Ring of Fire project were employment opportunities for the entire Aboriginal and neighboring communities through provision of appropriate partnership programs. This would in turn create cohesion and unity for boosting interrelationships among the two communities. 

  1. Finally, mining the Ring of Fire project would have generated substantial national physical infrastructure like all -weather roads that serve their people in all seasons, energy transmission lines to favor remote communities. Such investments would aid in transition from a less-efficient generation of diesel in electricity sector that favor communal integration into a broader economic significance.

Negative Outcomes

  1. Mining comes along with negative impacts to environmental conservation, and therefore burning all proposed mining activities in the Ring of Fire will ensure regulation of smart environmental safeguarding policies. Mining development and exploration often cause impactful stresses to the environment like loss of plant species, loss of biodiversity, destruction of plant habitats (Thom & Seidl, 2016), hence negatively affecting natural resources like land, water, air, animal and plant life. Ontario is considered a world leader in application of cutting edges and related mitigation strategies for environmental regulation.
  2. Ontario is one state facing a lot of labor market paradox, whereby employees often clamor for company workers yet there are high pockets of unemployment issues, which is a case pronounced within the mining sector in Northern Ontario. The main contributing factor to this is the fact that a good percentage of Ontario’s population lack qualifications for attaining jobs in the mining industry, a fact retrieved from the survey conducted by the OCC and the Leger Marketing.
  • Ontario’s post-secondary system of education does not produce highly competitive scholars with adequate skills necessary for earning a chance of employment in the mining sector. It is a major leading factor to high poverty levels because most young people are not aware of existence of such golden opportunities within the sector. To be realistic, it was worth canceling the proposed mining since it wouldn’t have benefited its citizens due to hiring of qualified labor force from foreign countries.
  1. The fourth leading factor to concurring with cancelation of the proposed mining in the ring of fire (Ontario) is high cost of living and direct isolation of some states, which renders the entire mining development in such regions unnecessary and unattractive (Jeziorski, 2014). It would also be difficult to implement it due to limited housing options for all potential company employees.
  2. According to World Health Organization 2014, mining comes with health impacts to people and operators within the mining fields due to production of different chemicals which might cause health related infections if the situation is not properly monitored.


It is necessary for the entire government of Ontario, Aboriginal community and key stakeholders in the proposal in partnership with the mining sector to review all regulations with regards to mining and get rid of unnecessary regulatory barriers that further impede developmental projects and affect communal operation.

Development of a long-term infrastructure plan for the community by Ontarian government, basing on the output amount likely to be generated by the mining sector for improving economic status. Improvement of quality of education is key to ensure production of highly competitive scholars who can operate effectively within the mining industry.

Ensuring that the proposed project puts in plan cost and inclusive elements of transportation and electricity transmission to eliminate extra costs that would otherwise create a burden to the government. The plan must also put into consideration the fact that both federal and provincial governments have a duty of ensuring development of Ring of Fire brings positive impacts on all First Nations communities.
