Smart Cities Challenge

The City of Fredericton and Saint Mary’s First Nation are jointly a finalist in the federal government’s Smart Cities Challenge. We are further developing our final proposal, with the help of a $250,000 grant from Infrastructure Canada, competing nationally for a $10 million prize to use data and technology to improve quality of life for residents.

Our Smart Cities Challenge Team members – which include more than 40 people from more than 20 organizations in our community – have been working diligently to collaboratively design and move forward five pilot projects that are the foundation of our proposal.
