"ExpressAddress" Online Moving Service Announced

Moving to Saskatchewan, or changing locations within the province, became easier today with the launch of the "one-stop" ExpressAddress online service.

SaskEnergy, SaskPower, SaskTel, SGI and the cities of Regina and Saskatoon today launched the new ExpressAddress interactive website. It is a convenient, online service, which allows Saskatchewan residents to connect, transfer or disconnect residential services for telephone, electricity, natural gas and water. Site visitors will also be able to update their address for driver's licences, vehicle registrations, and city services such as pet licences.

With ExpressAddress, customer data is secure and confidential, and the site visitor chooses which organization receives their information.

ExpressAddress is the first service of a Saskatchewan coalition of organizations that are cooperating to pool expertise and financial resources toward developing web-based customer service solutions.

"For the first time, these four Crown Corporations and our two largest cities have worked together to introduce a major customer service enhancement," Crown Investments Corporation (CIC) Minister Maynard Sonntag said. "With this unique partnership between the Crowns and the cities of Regina and Saskatoon, ExpressAddress becomes a virtual tool in making it easier for new residents moving to Saskatchewan, or people already here, to change their personal information."

Website visitors can access the ExpressAddress website, www.expressaddress.com, directly or link through one of the websites of the participating partners.

"ExpressAddress is a practical solution that the City of Saskatoon is pleased to offer," said Mayor Jim Maddin. "Instead of spending time repeating the same information over and over, you can very easily access the ExpressAddress website and quickly fill out the online form."

"The City of Regina was pleased to work with the Crown Corporations and the City of Saskatoon on this worthwhile project. Residents in Regina and across the province will appreciate the time and effort they will save by using ExpressAddress." City of Regina Mayor, Pat Fiacco said.

Saskatchewan is the first province in Canada to offer a multiple organization, online address change service. ExpressAddress was developed jointly by a team from the six participating organizations to meet growing demand for convenient online services. Other companies, cities or towns who wish to participate in ExpressAddress can obtain more information at http://www.expressaddress.com/.
