bciti+ citizen portal

The bciti+ portal is a unique, transactional and interactive smart portal that gives you one-stop online access to a wide range of city services. Via your computer, tablet or smartphone, you can now:

As soon as you open the platform, whether on a mobile device or a computer, you'll notice a completely modernized interface designed to enhance the user experience.

The home page now offers key news, upcoming events and the status of various buildings, in addition to alerts of current interest. It's a great improvement for keeping abreast of what's going on in your city at a glance.

In the resource list, you'll also find direct links to the most sought-after municipal activities.

With bciti+, the resident's card is digital! This card allows you to:

  • Sign up for or renew your memberships in bciti, without having to show up in person
  • Use your card with optical readers, such as the library’s self-service kiosks
  • View the activities of the members linked to your account
  • Consolidate and get easier access to certain municipal services online.
Each family member must obtain his or her own card.

How do I obtain a digital resident’s card?

1. I already have a bciti account

People who already have a bciti account don't need to create a new one on bciti+: their information has been transferred and their login details remain the same. Nor do they need to re-subscribe to notifications, as the settings already established have been retained.

Connect to the website or download the new bciti+ mobile application via Apple Store or Google Play. IMPORTANT: Click on I already have an account. Then select Saint-Lambert from the list and use the same login details (email and password) used in the previous version of bciti.

2. I have my laminated resident’s card (even if it has expired)

Create a bciti+ account or log in to your bciti+ account, then link your resident’s card to your account.

3. I don’t have a resident’s card

Create a bciti+ account or log in to your bciti+ account and then apply for a resident’s card. You will then need to import photo identification and proof of residence. If the address does not appear on the ID card, the following documents are accepted as proof of residence: lease, transcript, bank or utility statement (issued within the last three months), municipal or school tax account (issued within the last year), driver's license, etc.

4. What if I don’t have a smartphone?

Come to the recreation centre or the library. A staff member will be able to print a resident’s card for you (fees apply). Like the digital card, it will contain your name, membership number, a bar code and your memberships, including their expiry dates.

Each family member must obtain his or her own card. If all your family members have a bciti account linked to a resident’s card, you can group all the digital cards together and use them from the same mobile device. This feature will allow you to avoid having to carry around several cards or losing them.

Mandatory approval of a new minor account
When you apply to add a new child account, you must import a proof of residence for yourself (health insurance card, driver’s licence, etc.) and a document proving your relationship to the child (birth certificate, hospital card or school report card). The clerk will then activate the family link.

The bciti+ portal lets you update your account as well as those of your family members. You no longer need to contact the City if you change your phone number or email, for example, as this can now be done directly via the portal

The portal allows you to take out memberships for the following services:

  • library
  • recreational activities
  • indoor swimming pool
  • tennis courts

You can also sign up for and renew memberships for the whole family.

The resident’s card is valid at all times, but memberships must be renewed. Make sure that your recreational activities membership is valid before registering for the activities offered each session.

Recreational activities membership

  • The recreational activities membership is valid for 24 consecutive months, including the month it was acquired, for residents. It has no end date for non-residents.
  • To register for a recreational activity, your membership must be valid.
  • To get this membership or to renew it, you will be required to connect to bciti+. In order to complete any membership process, you will need to provide a credit card number, even if it is free, to validate your address.

You’re strolling along the street and notice a burnt-out traffic light, a pothole or graffiti. Snap a picture of it with the bciti mobile app and we’ll be instantly made aware of the issue.

Don’t have a smartphone? You can also bring non-urgent issues to our attention and track the status of your report via our online bciti+'s requests module. You can also fill out the form available at the bottom of the page or contact us at 450 672-4444 or info.citoyens@saint-lambert.ca.

How the requests module works

The bciti+ mobile app lets you report a non-urgent issue in three easy steps:

1) Select the nature of the issue, add a description and snap a picture.
2) Locate the issue on the map or enter the nearest street address.
3) Send your report.

The issue will immediately be added to our list of work orders. You can track the status of your report and receive notification at each stage until the issue is resolved.

The requests module should only be used for non-urgent issues where public safety is not at risk. When in doubt, call 911.

Participate in problem resolution

Even though the Public Works crew regularly patrols the municipality, citizens are often the first to notice something that is broken or damaged. By reporting an issue as soon as you see it, you’ll be contributing to improving your environment and the quality of services offered. You’ll be helping us to respond faster to correct various situations throughout the municipality.

Receive important news bulletins by mobile push notification, text message (SMS) or email. You can choose the type of notification you’ll receive according to your interests. You could, for example, choose to only receive snow removal alerts or notifications of emergency situations.
