Visitors to london.ca can expect to see a new website late next year.
As host to over 3,000,000 visitors a year, the City’s website is an important tool in delivering customer service, providing access to information and City services, and offering an opportunity for residents to engage in their local government.
current website was developed in 2013 on the SharePoint 2010 platform, with an
overhaul to support mobile optimization in 2016. With
the SharePoint 2010 platform no longer being supported beyond October
2020, along with upcoming AODA WCAG 2.0 AA Standard accessibility requirements
required by January 1, 2021, the City will work with Digital Echidna to deliver
an improved website as an opportunity to connect residents to City services and
information more effectively.
the coming months, working with the City, Digital
Echnida will engage with Londoners to gather community and user input, feedback
that will be used to deliver a website that is easy to use and provides
enhanced customer experience while meeting the needs of residents.
There will be a variety of opportunities for Londoners to get involved in this project, including;
- Online surveys
- Town Halls
- Drop in engagement sessions held at locations throughout the city
All opportunities for engagement will be posted on this site throughout the process. Here you will find our surveys as well as key dates to get involved.
These questions are designed to provide us with basic information about people who respond. We value your privacy and no answers will be tied back to any individual respondent (unless you choose to provide such information in any of the text-based answers). These questions help allow us look at how responses vary across different demographics to further contextualize and analyze the responses. Please note that these demographic questions are optional.
As part of our community engagement plan, we will be providing a variety of ways for residents to have their say. Below are a list of events that have been booked to date. Please note that additional dates will be added here as activities are booked and will also be promoted on our social media channels.
