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.

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 in Canada. Along with our office in Iqaluit, we also have offices in five North Baffin communities including: Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Sanirajak, Igloolik and Pond Inlet.

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


Our mission is to become 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. They even use hearing protection and safety glasses at home. Employers who have safety as a value make their workplace safe because they want to, not because of government regulation. Employees 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.

An organization where good work is recognized and rewarded. All employees are seen and treated as valued partners. Baffinland will invest in employee’s success and growth through providing tools, training and support needed to unleash their potential. Baffinland will endeavour to become the employer of choice for Inuit in Nunavut.

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

Respect the air, land, water and wildlife as we thoughtfully put to good use the earth's resources. Always remember that we are guests on this land and treat it respectfully. We will develop it responsibly and be good stewards of the land in concert 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. Innovation is seen as a key mechanism to achieve this outcome. Rigor in planning and thoughtful execution is a key strength. Teamwork is necessary for desired outcomes.
