Aimed at improving citizen engagement and simplifying the process of reporting problems or concerns within the community, the Town of Oakville has introduced a number of new features to its online Report a Problem tool, a key element of the town’s customer relationship management (CRM) system.

Through the Report a Problem tool, residents can easily connect with the town to report issues such as potholes, noise concerns, on-street parking violations, graffiti, garbage in parks and more.

Enhancements to the town’s Report a Problem online service include:
  • Increased number of services available online to the public, including a general inquiry option for any service that the town provides
  • More frequent status updates and comments provided to customers 
  • Keyword search to help users find the type of service request to submit
  • Increased efficiency for the public as a case is automatically created when a customer sends an email to ServiceOakville
  • Access to articles specific to Report a Problem case types 
  • More intuitive case creation experience for citizens when online reporting, so information is sent to the most appropriate town department for action and resolution
  • An enhanced map to better pinpoint the exact location of the service request
  • New look and feel that matches the new, offering a user-friendly interface for a seamless experience
  • Easier to read, larger font, and stronger colour contrast for improved accessibility
Residents must have an online services account to use the Report a Problem tool. For more information and to create an account, visit our online services page.
