Canadian Working Away Guide


Canadian Working Away Guide


The Working Away Guide is an invaluable resource tool for companies keen to support employees who work away from their loved ones.

Written by Mining Family Matters co-founders Alicia Ranford and Lainie Anderson and our resident psychologist Angie Willcocks, it includes information and advice most commonly requested by fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) families across the world.

The 32-page guide is available in English and French and aims to boost the emotional resilience of new and existing employees by offering simple strategies to keep relationships healthy and families happy.



Fourteen chapters cover key issues on relationships, parenting and mining life, including:

  • What to expect in the first few months
  • Helping kids to cope
  • Sharing time and avoiding conflict
  • Parenting and discipline
  • Tackling loneliness when you’re apart
  • Are you making excuses about sex?
  • Identifying stress and depression
