At Vale's Canadian operations we believe that the mines we dig are more than just holes in the ground. They're the foundation of something bigger, a lasting partnership that we help build with the communities we and our 7000 Canadian employees call home. We've always believed it's important to put as much back into our communities as what we take out of the ground. The deeper we dig down, the more broadly we extend our reach. Here are just a few of the Corporate Social Responsibility efforts we are committed to.
