“We are so thrilled to be recognized by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce with this award,” said Angie Robson, manager of corporate and Aboriginal affairs for Vale’s Ontario Operations, in a Dec. 5 news release.
“It’s wonderful to be acknowledged for the community relationships and investments Vale is making near our operations in Sudbury and Port Colborne.”
The OBAA Corporate Citizen Award recognizes a large business that demonstrates a sustained and long-term commitment to investing in the community in which it operates. The Ontario Business Achievement Awards (OBAA) are the most recognized industry awards in the province with a single focus on celebrating business success. This year’s awards ceremony took place on Wednesday, Nov. 29 in Toronto.
Vale was nominated for the award by the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce.
“We chose to nominate Vale because we know how committed they have been, and continue to be, to Greater Sudbury,” Chamber president Debbi Nicholson said in the release.
“The company’s economic contribution is felt locally, provincially, and nationally, and impacts our lives in many positive ways. As one of our largest private employers, and a significant contributor to charitable and not-for-profit organizations, Vale embodies the definition of corporate citizenship.”
