Information Webinar

An Opportunity to Learn About Ontario’s New Mining Lands Administration System

Call Us Now to Register and Be Ready for our April 10th Launch

We have received a lot of positive feedback about the information sessions we’ve delivered across the province this winter on how to navigate Ontario’s new 24/7 Mining Lands Administration System (MLAS).

Many mineral exploration and development industry clients have already benefited from these sessions but, because we can’t get to everyone in person and in response to client demand, we are offering a day-long virtual training session by webinar to all those interested in learning more about how to work in MLAS. Electronic mining claim registration and online management of Ontario’s mining lands goes into effect at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 10, 2018.

Mining Lands Section staff will offer this learning opportunity on:

Monday, April 9, 2018
9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Please note that the period of 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be set aside for clients to log into the session before the workshop starts.

How to Register for the Webinar

All interested participants are asked to register by contacting nicole.beaudry@ontario.ca so that we may provide you with the appropriate log-in credentials and instructions. Please note that registrations can only be accepted until end of day Friday, April 6. Other related handouts will also be provided.

What You Will Need to Participate

You will be logging on to a virtual meeting that will require your use of a computer or laptop, along with a telephone (best equipped with speaker phone for your comfort). We ask that where possible, you use phone equipment that can be muted at your end.

You Can Ask Questions

A webinar provides an opportunity to submit written questions silently anytime during the session or orally as facilitated by the host. So jot down any question you may have during the workshop and we’ll do our best to answer it.

MLAS Tutorials Coming

We will also be developing online tutorials in MLAS to help you navigate the site. These will provide easy to follow instructions on how to work within specific areas of the system. Until tutorials are available, our staff continues to be available to answer your questions.
