The following statement was given today in the House of Assembly by the Honourable Tom Osborne, Minister Responsible for the Office of the Chief Information Officer:

MyGovNL Now Available to all Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador

Mr. Speaker, I rise in this honourable house today to inform the public that MyGovNL, the Provincial Government’s platform that provides multiple online services in one convenient, combined location, is now available to everyone in Newfoundland and Labrador after a successful pilot program.

Mr. Speaker, residents expect government to be innovative and to make their lives easier. With MyGovNL, residents can now review and renew their driver’s licence and vehicle registration information quickly and easily online. Residents can also update their mailing address through their MyGovNL profile, or can advise if they no longer own a vehicle. This means fewer visits are required to motor registration offices.

As part of the Way Forward, MyGovNL is making it easier for residents to access the services they need online, and will be expanded to include even more programs and services for both residents and businesses in the coming years.

Mr. Speaker, the Digital Government plan is transforming the way services are delivered in Newfoundland and Labrador. We are helping residents access government services faster and with less hassle, letting them spend more time on the things that matter most to them.

Residents can now register for MyGovNL by visiting www.gov.nl.ca/digitalgovernment.

This plan will put government in a position to deliver on its vision of “One Client. One GovNL. One Relationship.” Thank you.
