Introducing CLAIMaps IV – using a Geocortex viewer
Table of Contents
The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) is introducing the new CLAIMaps application. The new version of CLAIMaps is intended to better serve and meet the needs of business and the mining industry in Ontario. Newly added functionality, data and imagery will improve a client’s ability to maintain and manage mining lands in a modern look and feel.
The new CLAIMaps application will maintain the existing search and navigation tools while providing added functions. Newly added are basemaps and imagery which will provide a more enhanced visual product with the ability to create, modify and print custom made as well as provide standard mapping products. Markup and printing tools have also been added to aid with identifying and displaying specific features on a map.
As part of our commitment to customer service, MNDM will continue to provide excellence in mapping services including in meeting its obligation to comply with the Access to Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). This newly introduced legislation is intended to better accommodate people with disabilities while improving and maintaining the high standard of service that MNDM provides to clients and the general public.

Mining Act Modernization Phase III
We remind clients that legislation enabling Phase III of Ontario’s Mining Act Modernization initiative tabled at Queen’s Park proposes to convert Ontario’s manual system of ground and paper staking and maintaining unpatented mining claims to an online system. It is your responsibility to understand conversion and plan for the impact of changes contained in the proposed Mining Act Amendment, 2015 (Bill 155).
