TEMPLATE Letter for Members to Use to Submit Responses to ERO Posting on Growth Plan February 13, 2019
The government has submitted a proposal to make Modifications to O. Reg. 311/06 (Transitional Matters - Growth Plans) made under the Places to Grow Act, 2005 to implement the Proposed Amendment to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017. OSSGA has made the point to the government that the current policy framework is not working. Approvals for new mineral aggregate operations in Southern Ontario are taking up to 10 years to complete the process. There are too many overlapping policies and inconsistent approaches between the Provincial Plans, Regional Official Plans, Local Official Plans and Conservation Authority policies regarding the management of this essential non-renewable resource.

Aggregate Producers Raise over $17K for Muskoka Children

March 19, 2013

"OSSGA is very pleased with the results," said association CEO Moreen Miller. "We have been engaged in many partnerships over the years and this is perhaps one of our biggest success stories to date."

The bulk of the funds came directly from a live auction of paintings created onsite by popular speed painter Dan Dunn during the association’s gala dinner on February 28. The remainder of the proceeds came from charity raffle sales over the three-day event. Of the grand total, $5,000 was donated by an OSSGA member company in memory of the late OSSGA past president David Arnill.

Representatives from OSSGA, including the Chair of the Board of Directors Ryan Essex and board member James Gordon, as well as the Mayor of Huntsville Claude Doughty, presented a cheque to the foundation on March 19 at 11:45 a.m. at the Huntsville Town Hall (37 Main St. East).
