Who We Are

Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation (Baffinland) is a Canadian mining company that produces the highest grade of direct shipping ore in the world, on Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada.

Baffinland is jointly owned by The Energy and Minerals Group and ArcelorMittal. Our head office is located in Oakville, Ontario and our northern headquarters is located in Iqaluit, Nunavut. We also have staff in seven Baffin communities: Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Igloolik, Kinngait, Kimmirut, Pond Inlet and Sanirajak.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values were developed to directly align with Inuit Societal Values.


Our mission is to be the lowest-cost producer of high-grade iron ore in the world.


Our vision is to safely and efficiently identify and develop resources within Baffin Island, unlocking their wealth-generating potential. 


When safety is a personal value, people naturally choose to make the safe choice, both on and off the job. Employers who have safety as a value make their workplace safe because they want to, not because of government regulation, and this influences employees to work safely because they want to, not because it is a company rule. In this environment, companies go above and beyond regulations to protect their people.

Integrity is often defined as doing the right thing even when no one else is around. It is the ability to act with honesty, be consistent, and ethical in whatever it is we are doing. It’s about being accountable, transparent and building trust through communications.

All employees are seen and treated as valued partners, and good work is recognized and rewarded. Baffinland invests in our employees’ success and growth by providing tools, training and the support needed to reach their potential. Baffinland aims to become the employer of choice for Inuit in Nunavut.

We respect and abide by Inuit Societal Values in the workplace and as a way of doing business. We strive to provide a healthy and safe workplace, free from physical or psychological bullying, harassment and violence. Violations of respect are investigated, and if substantiated, are dealt with in a timely manner. Multiculturalism is viewed as a strength and promoted. Consideration for people is first and foremost in all interactions.

We respect the air, land, water and wildlife as we thoughtfully put the Earth's resources to good use. Baffinland always remembers that we are guests on this land and treat it respectfully. We develop it responsibly and are good stewards of the land, in partnership with Inuit.

We are relentless in challenging ourselves and others to achieve high performance and create lasting socio-economic impacts in all that we do. We focus on improving every day and delivering on commitments, using innovation, rigorous planning and thoughtful execution. Teamwork is the key to our success.
