Equal Opportunity Employer

Our work environment is based on our philosophy that every person deserves to be treated with equal respect — regardless of position, gender, physical ability and culture — no matter where our operation is located in the world.

To maintain good labour relations, a Collaboration Committee has been established at each operating mine. These committees, consisting of employees from different departments who are elected by their co-workers, meet frequently with mine management to discuss various issues of concern (such as employment conditions, compensation and benefits, and safety).


Our competitive and comprehensive benefits packages are among the best in the industry and extend to all Agnico-Eagle employees.

Inter-divisional mobility within the Company allows our employees to gain valuable knowledge and experience.
