How would you improve quality of life through innovation?

The City of Edmonton wants to know. 

“We’re looking for the one-in-a-million idea that will help us win this Challenge,” says Mayor Don Iveson. “I know Edmontonians care deeply about their city and are generous in spirit, with a desire to collaborate and make a difference for their fellow citizens.”  

Answering the call to Infrastructure Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge, the City of Edmonton is partnering with other orders of government, local organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, businesses and Edmontonians to brainstorm ideas that use technology and information to improve livability and opportunities for the City and its people.

“We know that the more perspectives we get, the stronger our proposal will be,” says Wendy Gnenz, Branch Manager of Open City and Technology. “ Working together, we can create and nurture a resilient, livable and workable community that rises to the challenges we face today — I can’t wait to see the unique ideas Edmontonians will submit.”  

In addition to other forms of engagement, the City asks residents submit their ideas to the Smart Cities Challenge Citizen Engagement Site:
