SERVICE ONTARIO

We are now a ServiceOntario site!

The ServiceOntario at Libraries is a funding program providing libraries with resources to assist visitors in accessing online Ontario government information and services, such as public access computer terminals located in public libraries.

The purpose of this program is to enable libraries to help patrons who want to access government services online, and to increase awareness of ServiceOntario products and services. By supporting public internet workstations at libraries the program provides electronic access to citizens and enables self-help to government programs and services, such as applications for birth certificates and Ontario Drug Benefit Program, driver’s licenses and health cards.
