NOTICE TO OGS PUBLICATIONS SUBSCRIBERS

You may have noticed that the GeologyOntario Web site has undergone a significant change. Redesigning the site was necessary to complete important hardware upgrades and meet the requirements of The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

The site’s search functionality has been simplified and features different search functions and capabilities. All the information, data, reports and maps previously archived on GeologyOntario are still available to our clients. A help page is featured on the new site to help clients use the new search functions.

Redesigning the GeologyOntario platform is part of our commitment to ensure that Ontario Geological Survey information and services are accessible for all Ontarians. This includes providing services and programs that people with disabilities can use and benefit from equally and in a manner that respects their dignity and independence. The OGS will continue to strive to be a global leader in the development of geoscience data through the publication of maps, reports and digital data on Ontario's geology.

If you require more information or assistance on navigating the new GeologyOntario site, please contact Digital Data Specialist Alphons Evers at (705) 670-5740.
