Ontario Moving to Digital Reminders for Product Renewal Notices

Thursday, November 18, 2021

The Ontario government is eliminating mailing paper renewal notices in favour of digital reminders. These changes will help make services more convenient, accessible, and easier to use for making sure you do not miss a renewal deadline. Some of the changes that have already happened include:

  • Enabling online services through ServiceOntario with 24/7 access; including Accessible Parking Permits and Ontario Photo Cards
  • Launching the new Ontario Business Registry
  • Making the land registry completely paperless as an accessible web portal

If you have products that expired on or after March 1, 2020, and were not able to renew because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you will receive a final letter in the mail letting you know that it’s time to renew. Some Ontarians will continue to receive paper renewal letters in the mail for these products.
