Mining Family Matters in Canada     


Mining Family Matters is an online support network empowering Canadian families in mining, oil and gas. The organisation began life in Australia, founded by Alicia Ranford and Lainie Anderson in 2010. Alicia came up with the idea of a support website after her own young children struggled to cope with their dad's fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) roster – and she realized other families might benefit greatly by knowing they’re not alone in doing it tough sometimes. When the Australian website began to attract increasing enquires from Canadian families, was born. The free support website has attracted more than 17,000 visitors since PDAC in March 2014.
Mining Family Matters also produces an inexpensive guidebook that companies can purchase to support  the mental wellbeing of their workers and families. It’s designed to keep relationships strong and families happy. To discover more information on this resource, visit
