Community

BEING A GOOD NEIGHBOUR IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE

Back+Views+-+Brighter.jpg

The aggregate industry is essential to building strong communities across Ontario.

In addition to hospitals, schools, roads, houses and shopping malls, aggregate creates good jobs and careers in communities across Ontario.

7,000 people in Ontario work directly in the aggregate industry - often creating important employment in smaller or rural locations.

The aggregate industry is also an essential input to the construction industry - creating another 300,000 jobs in Ontario. 

Likely, someone you know or are related to makes their living as a result of the aggregate industry. 

The aggregate industry contributes to local municipalities through licence fees and the aggregate levy, and is currently working with all levels of government on legislation and regulation reforms that will better reflect the needs of municipalities. 


COMMUNITY RELATIONS AWARD WINNERS

Member firms of the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (OSSGA) have been recognized for their community relations efforts since 2001. Being a good neighbour is just as much a part of an aggregate operation as processing and rehabilitation. The Community Relations Award is presented to companies that demonstrate and earn respect with the citizens in close proximity to their operations. The Community Relations Award is based on four criteria:

  • Being a Good Neighbour

  • Community Involvement

  • Media Relations

  • Community Education
