Smart Cities Challenge

Graphic for the City of Mississauga Smart Cities Challenge

The City of Mississauga is participating in the Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge. The Challenge encourages communities to submit their ideas of how to improve the lives of residents through innovation, data and connected technology. The winning communities will receive up to $50 million in funding to implement their plans.

What is a Smart City?

Smart cities around the world are using data and technology to find new and innovative ways to improve their communities. These smart city ideas can provide solutions to:

  • advance transportation and ease traffic congestion
  • improve the environment
  • enhance access to services
  • ensure public safety
  • ease the effects of extreme weather
  • facilitate education
  • further access to social services and more.

Mississauga has already implemented many smart city initiatives including free public Wi-Fi, open data, hackathons, fibre network, Advanced Traffic Management, LED Lighting, mobile apps and more.

We are engaging the community, industry and agency partners to help us to develop a Smart City Master Plan and our Smart Cities Challenge submission.

Help us make Mississauga even better.

We need your big ideas on how to use technology, data and innovation to make Mississauga even better. Share your ideas below or come to one of our community engagement events scheduled in February (see the Key Dates section on the right for more details).
