The Smart Cities Challenge is a competition open to all municipalities, local and regional governments, and Indigenous communities across Canada to define their future, using a citizen-driven, smart city approach. A smart cities approach aims to achieve meaningful outcomes for residents by leveraging the fundamental benefits of data and technology.
The challenge is based on four guiding pillars of openness, integration, transferability and collaboration. Through this challenge, Edmonton has a chance to win up to $50 million. But more importantly, Edmonton has a chance to implement innovative solutions to our most pressing challenges, improving the lives of citizens.
