Ontario will continue to provide North Bay residents with easy access to land registration services at the newly expanded ServiceOntario centre at 447 McKeown Avenue as of Monday, March 3, 2014.
The new location replaces the Land Registry Office at 360 Plouffe St., which will permanently close Friday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. The new site features improved accessibility and is 3.6 kilometres away from the former location.
Hours of operation for the North Bay Land Registry Office and the ServiceOntario centre are Monday to Friday. 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The move is part of ServiceOntario’s modernization plan to offer the people of Ontario integrated access to a range of government information and services at any of the nearly 300 ServiceOntario centres across the province.
