How Do I Get Involved with SMRTCTY?
Mississauga’s SMRTCTY is a collaborative effort that includes residents, community & educational partners, and industry.
Have Your Say About Your SMRTCTY
Have Your Say Mississauga! is your main source for getting engaged with city engagement activities – including SMRTCTY. This is where you will find SMRTCITY initiatives such as Innovation Challenges and Living Labs projects.
Centre for Civic Curiosity
Centre for Civic Curiosity is where you can be part of the conversation about SMRTCTY. This includes talks, workshops, demonstrations and other activities. These are great activities to be part of the conversation, meet the SMRTCTY teams and network with others interested in these topics.
Living Labs showcase Smart City technologies that are intended to meet the needs of each neighbourhood and the people that live and work there. In these neighbourhoods the city is able to test new technologies on a trial basis in a real-life context with a user-centred approach. Locals are able to get information and provide direct feedback about the project as they progress.
Many smart municipalities provide opportunities to solve local problems and invite innovation through public challenges. With a small amount of money offered as a prize, issues such as localized flooding, developing new uses for an underused park, or other neighbourhood improvements can be opened to the public to encourage engagement and develop innovative solutions.
With our partners at EDO, we will be developing a model for innovation challenges that will both help to solve local issues but also provide opportunities for local entrepreneurs to test out new ideas and connect with the city. Find out more here.
