The Government of Canada Announces Winners of the Smart Cities Challenge
“Congratulations to finalists and winners of Canada’s first-ever Smart Cities Challenge. The work you have put into developing your proposals and to improving the lives of your residents is huge. You are all winners! Your efforts will benefit your communities, and also communities across the country who may be facing similar challenges. You are shining examples of Canadian ingenuity and innovations at its best and I am immensely proud.”
The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
More than 200 communities, large and small, from across Canada responded to the Smart Cities Challenge, which was launched in November 2017.
Of the 130 applications received, 20 were selected as finalists on June 1, 2018, and received grants of $250,000 to develop their proposals into fully-implementable business proposals.
These final proposals were submitted on March 5, 2019, and were evaluated and assessed by the independent Smart Cities Canada jury based on the criteria set out in the Smart Cities Challenge Finalist Guide.
This was the first of three competitions of the Challenge.
