Smart Cities Challenge

What is the Smart Cities Challenge?

The City of Greater Sudbury is taking part in the Smart Cities Challenge, issued by the Government of Canada, calling on communities of our size to submit their big ideas, for a chance to win up to $10 million.  

The Challenge encourages communities to adopt a smart cities approach to improve the lives of their residents through innovation, data and connected technology.
