General Description of Requirement

SMART CITIES CHALLENGE - CALL FOR INNOVATION

Cities across Canada, and around the world, are embracing new innovative approaches to improve the quality of life for their residents. Many are leading a transition towards becoming ‘Smart Cities’, leveraging data and connected technologies to dramatically improve economic, social and environmental outcomes.

Accordingly, Infrastructure Canada has recently initiated the Smart Cities Challenge – a competition open to all municipalities, local and regional government and Indigenous communities with prize money going to the successful applicant to help implement a proposal to utilize data and connected technology.

The Smart Cities Challenge is a unique opportunity to catalyze individual efforts and bring together diverse perspectives from community leaders and city builders, governments, corporations, entrepreneurs and academic innovators to achieve a real and positive impact to common issues.

The City of Surrey and the City of Vancouver (collectively, the “Cities”) have both led pioneering Digital & Smart City efforts that have already realized progressive results, contributing to our communities being healthier, more inclusive and livable.

Building on past successes, the Cities intend to collaborate on a joint application to the Smart Cities Challenge in the $50,000,000 category (the “Joint Application”).

This Call for Innovation (the “CFI”) provides an opportunity for applicants (each, an “Applicant”) to submit proposals.
