What's a UbiName?
A UbiName or Ubiquitous Name is a wireless identity that connects you with people and things near you.
It's like having a website for your smartphone that moves around with you whereever you go.
You can attach all sorts of content to a UbiName and use it in myriad ways.
In fact, you are using a UbiName to play the scavenger hunt and connect with objects.
A UbiName is all about proximity, that is, where you are in relation to other identities close by.
To get more use out of your UbiName, move around your community with our free Ubi App.
Discover what merchants have to offer (of interest you) when you are close to their stores.
Anonymously communicate with nearby people.
Interact with your devices on the Internet of Things.
Play games with people in your vicinity.
Explore similar interests and hobbies.

Add public interests and private content to your UbiName using our free Ubi App.

How To Use A Passport
This Community Passport Web App connects you to your community and surroundings.
The passport rewards you for learning and exploring, even being "green" and using public transit.
Walk around and visit locations to unlock badges and virtual items hidden in plain view.
Collecting these items and badges will score points for chances to win prizes, usually on a monthly basis.
There are many passports to use to explore communities. Some are area-wide like the York Region Festival Alliance, connecting 22 fun-filled festivals.
Others let you interact with merchants on a charming Main Street like that of Newmarket.
Occassionally, you will find a time-limited Scavenger Hunt or virtual Hidden Cash game.
Your passport is a fun and unique way of discovering what is close to home.
To use any passport, just login or register. They are all free, provided by local merchants and sponsors.
IMPORTANT: Your device's browser must have Location Services (GPS) enabled.
