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

Stay tuned for new and exciting features in the future.

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

    No camera overlay setting on navigation map, zone map only displays selected camera, map freezes returning from menu, cameras should display compass direction. Route planning function...? Look elsewhere...Poor effort overall.

    Every tab says pull down to refresh but nothing will refresh just old alerts from days ago... When its working I like that it alerts you when incidents have cleared but after a week of use i still got caught in construction traffic that it didnt pick up

    Really has no value in its current state. The City wants motorists to stop using mobile apps when driving yet they release an app that encourages it.
