OCAS Office Closure

Over the past several months, the OCAS team has worked to create a comprehensive plan to begin re-opening our office to both employees and external visitors, while ensuring our adherence to public health guidelines.

As part of this phased return-to-office plan, some members of our team are now working in the office and we’re continuing to deliver all services, including support via telephone, chat, or email. We’ve also begun to allow external visitors on a limited and highly-regulated basis.

OCAS Systems and Services

All of OCAS’ systems and services, including the OCAS Partner Portal and eTMS, are available to users remotely. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it using the ‘Forgot Password’ link found on the login page of each system.

Mail Courier Delivery

We are continuing to receive mail during our office closure, however the reliability of package deliveries is at the subject of individual couriers. We are recommending all mail be sent via Canada Post, and advise that you do not courier items to us until further notice.
