WINNIPEG - HUDBAY MINERALS marked 80 years of success in Manitoba by announcing a $1-million contribution to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Canada's first national museum outside the national capital area. Located in Winnipeg, the museum will be the largest human rights centre in the world, with a special focus on equipping and educating young people to become human rights leaders and advocates.
The company made the contribution in recognition of its employees - past and present - who have been vital to HudBay's success. The contribution reflects the shared value of perseverance that is part of Canada's history of upholding and strengthening human rights. Company executives joined current and former employees as well as special guests Gary Doer (Premier of Manitoba) and Vic Toews (MP for Provencher and president of the Treasury Board), for an event that celebrated the company's many accomplishments.
"Our company was built by Manitobans with a spirit of exploration and perseverance. This museum will honour the same spirit - the perseverance for human rights. HudBay and its employees continue to build on that pride, and through our contribution we look forward to seeing the museum come to life right here in Winnipeg," said HudBay president and CEO Peter Jones. "We are thrilled to be a part of this Canadian initiative. This is an exciting time for HudBay and we're delighted to give back in a way that reflects our global success."
HudBay intends to recognize its 80-year legacy through a number of internal and community initiatives over the next 12 months. Visit www.HudBayMinerals.com to learn about 80 years of success and see pictures of the various events.
