Service Ontario Centers in Peel Region Are Upgrading Their Systems to Provide Ontarians “a better customership.”

Posted on 21 July 2010 by .

These centers provide either driver’s license and vehicle registration services to Ontarians or OHIP, however these services will now be integrated to serve residents of Mississauga and Brampton better. These services will be expanding to 300 Service Ontario Centers across the province. The goal is to have services available “under one roof,” so that the residents don’t have to travel more than 10 kilometers to access these services. 95 out of 300 Service Ontario services have integrated their services so far.

“This is one thing we really, really wanna get right,” said Minister Harinder Takhar, Ontario Minister of Government Services while making the announcement at Service Ontario Centre at 1 Wexford Rd. Brampton.

“Now people [Bramptonians] won’t have to go to Mississauga” for health cards, he said. “We’re making it convenient for people to do business with us.”

1 Wexford Rd. Service Ontario had provided services to 289,000 Ontarians in the year 2009. Since July 18th, its computer systems have been upgraded to issue or renew health cards also.

Integrated, better service and flexibility remained the theme of Minister Takhar’s announcement in Brampton and Mississauga.

The centers would be open late and on weekends “if needed,” Mr. Takhar said.

Ms. Linda Jeffrey, Minister of Natural Resources, was “pleased” with this integrated system, saying “residents of Brampton have been telling me for years that they needed this [integrated system].”

MPP Charles Sousa joined MPP Takhar at ServiceOntario centre at Westdale Mall, Mississauga. He said that only  45% Ontarians are satisfied with government’s customership, “so there’s quite a gap,” which would be filled by integrating the system to provide public service to people.

In addition to this, 24 hours’ service is available for people online at http://www.serviceontario.ca/
