TORONTO – The ONTARIO MINING ASSOCIATION (OMA) launched its new, revamped website on May 25. The launch is only one of the recent changes at the association. The office has been relocated, a new information technology system is working, and the association even has a new logo.
The website strives for improved communication with the OMA’s key audiencespoliticians, public servants, media and the public. It also aims to demonstrate that mining is a modern, high-tech, environmentally sound industry, which is contributing to the economic and social wellbeing of everyone in the province. The site has sections on economics, environment and education, among others, to highlight the achievements of OMA members.
For example, the education section features the OMA First Nations video "Mining New Opportunities", which will be available for viewing in five languages (English, French, Cree, Ojibway and Oji-Cree). The website also has mining information that is tied into the public school curriculum, and this section will be helpful to teachers and students alike.
