Smart Cities Challenge

Niagara Region is excited to support our communities and local partners in developing a submission for the Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge and we need your help.

Smart Cities empower communities to address real issues through the use of data and connected technology.

Our approach is to collaborate with Niagara’s citizens, community groups, and local businesses on a submission that leverages your local experiences and expertise. We want to know what issues are facing your community and how a smart cities approach can help deliver a solution.

Sky’s the Limit

The Smart Cities Challenge is aimed at empowering communities across the country to address local issues their residents face using a smart cities approach.

The competition is open to all municipalities, local or regional governments and indigenous communities across Canada.

The winning submission will receive a prize of $50 million to implement their plan.

There are two other prizes of up to $10 million for communities with populations under 500,000 and one prize of up to $5 million for communities with populations under 30,000.
