WHAT IS THE SMART CITIES CHALLENGE?
The City of Mount Pearl is participating in a national Smart Cities Challenge and we want your help.

In November 2017, Infrastructure Canada launched the Smart Cities Challenge. It’s a national competition that challenges communities like ours to think outside the box, and generate some big, bold ideas to improve the lives of their residents through innovation and technology.

Across the country, communities are building submissions and competing for one of four awards:

One prize of up to $50 million (all communities)
Two prizes of up to $10 million (communities with populations under 500,000)
One prize of up to $5 million (communities with populations under 30,000)
