MESSAGE FROM OUR MAYOR DON IVESON

Infrastructure Canada has issued a challenge to all of the cities in Canada to become better, and we’re answering the call!

The Smart Cities Challenge encourages communities and their most creative minds to adopt new and innovative approaches to city-building.

By being innovative and taking a risk, Edmonton — as a large-size community — has a chance to win up to $50 million out of the $75 million prize pool. The real prize here, however, is not the money; it’s implementing innovative solutions to our most pressing challenges by enabling partnerships, using data and connecting technologies to improve the quality of life for Edmontonians.

Edmonton is a top-five finalist, and we are hoping to take home the $50 million prize.
