Ottawa Nav is a first of its kind connected city platform allowing real time, zone based communication between the City of Ottawa and its citizens. This platform is managed using an administrative console controlled directly by City of Ottawa employees.

With a current emphasis on traffic, you get live camera, road and traffic information from a 2.5 or up to 100 kilometre radius, depending on your distance of travel. A unique zone centric navigation mode further helps in passing on information while on the go.

With zones, the City of Ottawa has turned every area to a smart space, catered to finding information easily, personally and instantly. For example:

At Parliament Hill? Check out their zone to see when they're open, history about our country, and exciting events going on.
Near one of our great museums? Check out their zone to access their apps, opening times, and interesting exhibits.
In a city zone? Check out traffic cameras and events, plus other services such as OC Transpo and Pay by cell relevant to the zone you’re in.

Look forward to more zones being created around the city.

Ottawa Nav is an all Canadian connected city partnership is made possible using the award winning Flybits technology in collaboration with the City of Ottawa and Ryerson University.

Thank you for choosing Ottawa Nav. It is a central information hub for everyone in our great city. For support and feedback, please contact us at

    Useless, works for one mth then stops working for weeks.... This is the third time this has happened in less than a year. Uninstall time, there are better apps for traffic.

    Rather than try to figure out how to get it calm down, I've uninstalled it. Plus, the UI was incredibly sloppy and frustrating.

    This is a quality app from our city and probably the best out of any city in Canada, maybe even NA... The map has camera overlays, driver and passenger modes, notifications for delays, etc etc. I don't know how much better this app can get. Really well done.

    Not well laid out, very clumsy. I prefer some of the other apps for Ottawa traffic cameras. Hugely disappointed in this "thrown together" app. Every time the app starts, it tells me no GPS detected. If I wanted it enabled, it would be already, and I certainly don't need a reminder each and every time. I know this is v1.0, but honestly it could have been so much better. I prefer the Ottawa T

    The interface is poorly designed for a smart phone. The info is there but not clearly presented.
