THINK BIG! How would you improve Toronto through data and technology?

The City of Toronto will compete in the Federal Smart Cities Challenge and we need your help.

Using data and technology, smart cities have the potential to improve all aspects of livability and opportunity in a city– from transportation, the environment, economy, communities, engagement and social services.

The City is committed to continuously improving and modernizing public services, now and in the future – and we want to know what you think the biggest challenges facing Toronto are and your ideas for how innovation and technology can make a meaningful impact to life in Toronto.

Get Involved – Share your idea!
