The partnerships we have with northern businesses make Cameco a stronger and more sustainable company.
We are proud of our Northern Preferred Supplier Program, which makes collaborating with northern communities and businesses a top priority.
In 2011, this program was very profitable for northern business people. 74% of services contracted to our northern minesites, or approximately $393 million, went to northern businesses.
By supporting these companies, while still maintaining high standards for quality and fair pricing, we help the north build capacity for the future of mining and in other industries.
