Guardian login: eVaka Tampere online service

On their first login, the guardian may create an user account they can later use to manage their daily affairs. Creating the user account requires strong identification (e-banking identification or a mobile certificate). Thereafter, is possible to use the user account to manage daily affairs, but some of the eVaka services require strong identification any time they are used.

There is no separate mobile app for the eVaka service. The service works in the browsers of various mobile devices and other computers, adapting to various screen sizes and shapes automatically. After logging in, you may create a browser view bookmark in the Home menu or start screen of your mobile device (precisely how this is done differs from device to device). This allows you easy access to eVaka as if it were a mobile app.

If you would like to be notified by e-mail of messages, decisions, documents, etc. sent via eVaca, please save your e-mail address in the Settings - My details tab.

Electronic service

The custodian can receive decisions made in eVaka (early childhood education and care, service vouchers, client fees) as an electronic notification in the service. However, you need to activate the messaging service first.

More information on the messaging service

If the guardian chooses to not employ the messaging service, the decisions will be sent by letter mail. We recommend activating the messaging service.

The guardian can also see the decisions made in eVaka through their own interface.

The development of eVaka

The development of eVaka was kicked off in Espoo and the City of Tampere joined in the process in spring 2020. 

From the beginning of 2022, the eVaka system has been developed in collaboration between four cities (Espoo, Tampere, Turku ja Oulu). The system is currently in use in these four municipalities.

During 2024, eVaka will be introduced in the municipalities surrounding Tampere (Nokia, Ylöjärvi, Kangasala, Pirkkala, Lempäälä, Vesilahti, Orivesi and Hämeenkyrö).

The eVaka system will be developed on the basis of feedback from users. For this reason, user feedback is regularly sought through various surveys. Feedback can also be provided through the city's feedback channel:
