About the Smart Cities Challenge

The Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge is a competition that has asked municipalities across Canada to submit bold ideas to tackle an issue facing residents in their community using innovation, data and connected technology.

Here is the timeline of the Smart Cities Challenge Process:

The Smart Cities Challenge invited submissions to align with one to two of the following focus areas: economic opportunity, empowerment and inclusion, environmental quality, healthy living and recreation, mobility and safety and security.

The winning municipality will receive $50 million to solve an important local issue.
