The Museum’s primary mandate is to educate the public and students on the role of minerals in our everyday life and mining — its past, present and future. This is a common thread in our exhibits, underground tour and interpretive signs and engagement. The Museum itself is a non-profit and registered charity. Operating funds are primarily raised through ticket sales and memberships.
While the Museum is a non-profit and registered charity it is still involved in supporting local and provincial organizations. Some of these include:
To request a charity a donation for a fundraiser to benefit a school or a non-profit organization, please send an email detailing the initiative to firstname.lastname@example.org
We aim to extend our commitment to responsible workplace practices to better serve our employees and visitors as well as promote a healthy environment and workplace. In 2015 the Museum initiated a “green team”. Part of this initiative including consulting with Green Step, an environmental consulting group that runs the “Green Tourism” program. This will also include an audit process to ensure we have our best foot forward on our environmental initiatives.
