SeeClickFix working well for Town of Yarmouth. 648 issues resolved since 2019. Trying to get Municipality of Yarmouth to adopt. US$1,000 annual license fee. Citizen engagement and government accountability are 2 major benefits.

This doesn't tell me what Canadian cities are using this? Would be helpful to have better information. And to get this app in Toronto!!
Great idea.

This could also apply to our digital world. If an end user notices a typo in an official communication, or a ceiling tile about to fall off, or even a web service misbehaving, this SeeClickFix approach could be just another event source driving corrective actions.

Submitted by Bruce Cuthbert on May 13, 2016 - 7:57 AM, developed to PrivacyByDesign standards by Vancouver company, should be used to connect Canadians to all 4 levels of government and to connect communities and streets. Citizens interested in all forms of civic engagement at all 4 levels need to be able to discuss issues, polls, etc leading to input to help improve government. MobilePD can integrate with seeclickfix to help make communities safer, healthier and more vibrant.

We would benefit from a focused ongoing public engagement. If you are going to use a variety of tools, use PlaceSpeak to bring them all together so we can stay involved with our areas of interest federally as well as provincially and locally. Also provide suggestions of the 3 things thst you would like to see enhanced on PlaceSpeak. Let’s make Canada better together.
