Government of Canada ePass
You know, as much as people say governments are slow, I was pretty impressed with our federal government's ePass system.
I noticed it when I filed my taxes a week or so ago. Something said that if I registered for an ePass I could track the status of my tax return. So, I registered... anyway, it turned out that they had to send me a code in the mail to let me access it so I couldn't check anything right away.
Then, in tidying up my house I found a couple of tax receipts for donations I'd made that I didn't include in my filing. Anyway, the next day I received my code and logged in and noticed that I could make a correction to my tax filing if I wanted. Craziness! I mean, to sort this out in the past would probably have been a nightmare (to the point where it wouldn't have made any sense - mind you, I'd never tried to alter a filed tax return). Anyway, I decided I'd check and see what difference the charitable tax receipts made to my return, and lo and behold it was over $20 so I decided to give this advanced e-stuff a try ;)
I've made the changes, and in fact, did it after my 'assessment' was complete so now it's being reassessed. So, I can't tell you how well it all worked out, but I'm fairly impressed with it so far.
In fact, I notice that I can fill out portions of my passport application online too... I wonder what other neat services are there too.
