What is the Smart Cities Challenge?

In late 2017, Infrastructure Canada launched the Smart Cities Challenge, inviting cities across the country to think big about their futures. To uncover a path forward through innovation and technology to solve some of their greatest challenges.

Mount Pearl residents and businesses came together, as they often do, and rose to the challenge. Your feedback has not only informed the submission but has helped us build a roadmap to the future of our city.

Our plan matches the entrepreneurial spirit of our people with the power of technology. Together, the two are unstoppable. Our fully integrated technology sandbox will be the vehicle by which we build the solutions to lower our median age, increase our population, and double the number of technology companies in our City.

We have successful submitted the proposal and look forward to putting our plan into action.
