City’s website receives award

When the folks at the Web Marketing Association got a look at the city’s website, they liked what they saw.

The City of Oshawa’s website has been awarded with the association’s 2016 Standard of Excellence Award in the Best Government Website category after being judged on criteria such as ease of use, design, copywriting, interactivity, use of technology, innovation and content.

“The city’s website was truly a very successful collaborative project. Input from city staff, residents, business leaders and community partners helped shape the new website’s design, organization of information and top priorities for web content,” states Councillor Amy McQuaid-England, chair of the city’s corporate services committee, in a news release.

“We would like to extend a huge thank you to those who have shared their comments so far. We look forward to continued feedback to strengthen the city’s online presence and meet the needs of our community.”

The city’s current website, launched in May 2015, is no stranger to awards, having earned a gold Hermes Creative Award from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, and an OVATION Award of Merit from the International Association of Business Communicators’ Toronto chapter.
