The PwC Canada-Lavery Information and Networking Cocktail, that took place at the Lavery Conference Centre in Montreal on February 27, was a success. Held under the theme "How to attract, manage, motivate and retain talent in innovative ways within the mining industry in Quebec?", this event mostly drew representatives from mining corporations that are active in Quebec, particularly within Plan Nord territory.
The event co-organizers, Mr. René Branchaud, partner and coordinator of Lavery’s Business Law Group, and Mr. Nochane Rousseau, PwC partner and leader of the Mining industry for the province of Quebec, invited participants to discuss the issue of leadership in the context of human resources management in the mining sector.
