Simplifying Permit Signing 

So, how does it work? 

It’s simple and fast. Get signatures 10x faster when you use eZsign e-signatures:

  1. Directly in your PG Solutions system, you can send e-signature requests for permits through eZsign* (you can also go directly to the eZsign app).
  2. When a permit applicant needs to sign a document, they receive a secure link via email.
  3. Permit applicant receives the link by email, verifies the content and applies its electronic signature.
  4. The system authenticates the signer’s identity, records the signature and generates a legally binding signed document, ensuring the process is both official and legal.


*An Enterprise account with eZsign is required.

Aside from Permits via PG solutions, several other types of paperwork at municipalities can be handled effectively in the eZsign signature app: documents related to procurements, HR, City Council minutes, and more.  Say goodbye to paperwork and chasing people for signatures.  

Advanced Security Measures 

Security and privacy are top priorities for eZsign. The platform employs advanced security protocols and encryption methods to safeguard electronic signatures and documents. Moreover, eZsign ensures compliance with Quebec Law 25 and offers compatibility with identity verification subscriptions, providing an added layer of security. 

“With eZsign, we have a log that shows who viewed what and when they viewed it, which allows us to prove that an applicant saw and acknowledged the permit requirements and, if those requirements aren’t met, impose the appropriate penalties. This has been a major process improvement.”
