Get to know your Ottawa City Councillors with the OC Councillor app. Don't know who your city councillor is? No problem, use the search by postal code function to determine your councillor. Or, use the current location function to determine what City of Ottawa ward you are currently in. Once you've determined who your councillor is, you will be able to view their contact information as well as add their information to your contact list on your phone.

iOS version will be available once we get app store approval.
