Join the challenge

Municipal Governments around the world are focusing on using technology to improve quality of life for residents, enable sustainability, better deliver services and improve effectiveness. ‎This includes enabling more online services and direct two way communication between the community and their government; and using technology to improve the services themselves, such as using sensors to monitor performance real-time and using the data to make decisions.


Infrastructure Canada has launched a $50 million Smart Cities Challenge program and the City of Hamilton is participating. The Smart Cities Challenge is a pan-Canadian competition open to communities of all sizes, including municipalities, regional governments and Indigenous communities (First Nations, Métis and Inuit). The Challenge encourages communities to adopt a smart cities approach to improve the lives of their residents through innovation, data and connected technology.

We want you to join the challenge by completing a short survey!
