Smart Cities Challenge

Smart Cities Challenge

How can data and technology improve our community?

A Smart City is one that utilizes technology to solve challenges and enhance its quality of life. Smart city projects may include using sensor technology to detect flooding, traffic and lighting controls that can be adjusted from a single location to meet current demands, heated roadways that can be turned on remotely to help melt and clear snow and ice.

The Town of Caledon is participating in the Government of Canada‚Äôs Smart Cities Challenge, with the winning communities to receive up to $10 million in funding to implement their plans. The Challenge encourages communities to submit their ideas of how to improve the lives of residents through innovation, data and connected technology. Funding must be used for projects that move Caledon towards becoming a Smart City.
