We are privileged to operate in the territory of the Robinson Huron Treaty and homeland of the Métis.

Difference Makes All the Difference

At Vale, we are committed to ensuring an inclusive work environment where people feel comfortable to be themselves. Vale encourages everyone to express their ideas and opinions and Vale values the plurality of individual profiles. We want our people to feel that all voices are heard, all cultures respected and that a variety of perspectives are not only welcome – they are essential to our success. We treat each other fairly and with dignity regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, age, sexual orientation or any other personal consideration that makes us different.

Vale is seeking to increase diversity across our operations and improve equal opportunity at Vale and in the mining industry.
