Smart Cities Challenge!


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!
