Create a Partner Portal account

Each organization can only have one primary Partner Portal organization account.

Review the list of intermediaries with Partner Portal access to ensure that your organization does not already have an account before setting up a new account.

If an account already exists, you will need an administrative user on the account to add yourself as an additional account user. You can contact us for assistance if you are having trouble contacting your administrative user.

Instructions on how administrative users can add additional users to a primary account can be found in the Partner Portal Onboarding guide.

To create a Partner Portal account, you will need to:

  1. Select “Create a Partner Portal Account” to fill in a form with your profile information. You can choose to consent to being on the intermediary list when creating your account. This is optional and not a requirement for access to Partner Portal.
  2. Receive an email with an activation code and instructions to create or log into an existing My Ontario Account.
  3. Create/log into your My Ontario Account. This will be the account information and password you will use going forward to log into Partner Portal.
  4. Select “Launch Partner Portal” and enter the activation code that was sent to your email.
