MyVancouver is an innovative mobile app that is designed to make it easier than ever for citizens of the city of Vancouver to notify city staff in the event that they notice some civic issue that needs fixing, such as a broken streetlight or an open pothole for example.

The app also allows users to access city information such as events calendars, street cleaning schedules, job listings and online services, although the main focus is getting citizens involved in civic improvement.

Ultimately, the MyVancouver app makes use of modern and widely available smartphone technology to get citizens more engaged in the civic process. Rather than merely observing and complaining to themselves about a pothole, citizens can now go about being proactive and helping their city be better in ways big and small.
