Helping you help others. Streamlining consistent accessible high-quality information and services to citizens The ServiceOttawa Department is responsible and accountable for managing the front end “customer experience” when residents initiate an information request, service request or transaction for all City services. Mandate Questions? New Department created in October 2011

Request a garbage and recycling collection calendar
View photo, floor plans and videos for rental facilities
Check the status of their service request
And many, many more service requests! How to create a
service request online. Start at ottawa.ca Why create Service Requests Online? Submitting a service request online is the fastest way to get
request to the proper departments.

Currently, if you send an e-mail to "311" (311@ottawa.ca)
it takes longer to process and is significantly more costly for
the City.

An SR created online goes immediately to the department and
costs the City about 34 cents. Have citizens been using ServiceOttawa? In the first 23 days of launching (Feb 1 - Feb 23, 2012):

I am writing to say how pleased I am with City of Ottawa regarding this interaction, given: 1.) The City of Ottawa has an online service request system! That is wonderful!
2.)The service was carried out 3 days quicker than estimated online. It was carried out today!

The Cumberland library branch will also host a dedicated computer workstation with access to only Ottawa.ca, promoting self-service via the many services available on ServiceOttawa.ca
This undertaking was driven by a need to provide easier client access to services, develop services to outlaying areas, and promote efficient use of existing city facilities.
Library Pilot Project Services offered at Ruth E. Dickinson branch: There will be a ServiceOttawa client service representative on-site to carry out transactions such as:
purchasing OC Transpo products (bus tickets and passes),
parking request or payments,
water and tax bill payments,
request for new or renewal of pet and burn licenses and;
solid waste bin coupons, calendars and yellow bags.
