London, Ontario – October 3rd, 2022 – PSD Citywide® officially launched its enhanced Citywide Permitting™ suite today at the Ontario Building Officials Association AMTS Conference in Hamilton, Ontario. This enhanced version introduces several new features including a Citizen Portal, the ability to accept and process fees and online payments, as well as a new planning module.
