Project Background Information

ServiceOntario committed to eliminate distribution of paper renewal notices. Currently, over 13Million notices are sent to Ontarians to alert them of the need to renew Driver’s Licence, Health Card and Vehicle Registrations. Elimination of notices has been planned for January 1, 2020.

After this time, paper notices will only continue for certain groups, i.e. children under 16 or

above 70 years of age, people in care facilities etc.

Digital Reminders will support the elimination of paper renewal notices by providing Ontarians with an alternative electronic form of renewals. Digital Reminders will allow people to sign-up

and receive renewal notices by SMS, email, or voice call. Ontario residents unable to access

the internet would be able to call Service Ontario’s contact centre and subscribe for voice call or SMS through a live agent. The Digital Reminders application will also manage scheduling of print notifications that continue to certain groups.

A multi-disciplinary team with ODS and GSIC resources are collaborating on the technical

solution for Digital Reminders. The team is comprised of product, technical, design, and

content resources and is working closely with MOH and MTO on the full solution.


Digital Reminders will be launched in 2 phases.

Phase 1, launching in late 2020, will enable public sign-ups for notices by SMS, email, and

voice call for three products: driving licenses, license sticker plates, and health cards.


Phase 2, in March 2021, will integrate with Notify and begin sending digital notices and

scheduling print notices for all three products: driving licenses, license sticker plates, and

health cards.
