Announcements and Events

How can we use smart solutions to make Ottawa an even better place to live, work and play? We need your best, most innovative ideas for the Smart Cities Challenge!

Ottawa is entering the Smart Cities Challenge, in which the Government of Canada has invited Canadian cities to compete for a top prize of $50 million. The goal is to solve community challenges with a smart city approach by using data and connected technology to achieve meaningful outcomes for residents.

Let’s rise to this challenge together! Answer our questionnaire before March 11, 2018. Tell us about challenges and opportunities in Ottawa, and share your ideas about how data and technology can improve our community.

Think big, bold and out-of-the-box! Your answers will help the City identify the most important challenges our communities will face in the future and possible innovative solutions to address them.

Learn more about the Smart Cities Challenge.

For more information on City programs and services, visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401). You can also connect with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
