Smart Cities Challenge

Niagara Region, in partnership with 12 local area municipalities, 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.
