Launch of two new online applications—In My Neighbourhood and MyServiceOttawa

In November 2013, Council approved the 2014 ServiceOttawa Program deliverables. On behalf of the ServiceOttawa Program, I am pleased to announce the launch of two new online applications—In My Neighbourhood and MyServiceOttawa as a part of the 2014 ServiceOttawa Program deliverables.

The bilingual In My Neighbourhood map offers a quick way for residents to locate schools, libraries, parks, recreation facilities, community services, events, land development applications and more within a geographic neighbourhood. In My Neighbourhood utilizes resources and information we already have, like the geoOttawa mapping and our open data program, and can be accessed from most desktop PCs, mobile phones and tabletdevices. It will be available through MyServiceOttawa as well as on ottawa.ca.Access In My Neighbourhood on ottawa.ca here.

MyServiceOttawa is a fully bilingual account that allows residents to securely access multiple City services and information in one place. It is free to set up, easy to use and provides residents access to City information and services from the comfort of their own home or office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Access MyServiceOttawa on ottawa.ca here.

This initial release is the culmination of tremendous behind-the-scenes work. It provides a platform for online interactions where we need to ensure the identity of the person electronically. It will also provide the ability to collect resident information once and apply it to multiple transactions while adhering to MFIPPA requirements. We are collecting feedback and will make improvements and market MyServiceOttawa to target groups as we launch additional features in the future.

With the release of these tools, we’re building a foundation that will allow the City to provide an ever-growing range of online services and personalized features. We’re making it easier to find the services and information our residents search for most frequently on ottawa.ca.
