OCARC makes use of the Google Workspace platform. This page details some of the ways we use it.

Important Notes

  • Password changes must be completed on https://www.ocarc.ca and may take up to 24 hours to fully propagate to Google Workspace. If you change your password in Google Workspace it will ultimately be reset to your LDAP password during the next synchronization cycle. Likewise, if you use the Google password recovery tool your password will eventually revert to your LDAP password.
  • OCARC is not responsible for the contents of these google accounts, This service may be withdrawn at any time. It is up to the user to ensure that data stored in these accounts is adequately backed up elsewhere.
