This webinar was to present findings from the Open Smart Cities in Canada project. The presentation reflects on a first ever definition for an Open Smart City and the Open Smart Cities Guide V1.0 that is informed by research conducted in Canada and an examination of international best practices. In the webinar, we refer to tools, practices, policies, recommendations and legal frameworks to guide Canadian municipalities toward co-creating Open Smart Cities with their residents.
This research is led by OpenNorth and funded by the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections program. The core team members leading this research are Jean-Noé Landry (OpenNorth), Rachel Bloom (OpenNorth), Prof. Tracey Lauriault (Carleton University), M. David Fewer (Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC)), and Prof. Mark S. Fox (University of Toronto). This Project incorporates input from smart city representatives and informants at the cities of Edmonton, Guelph, Montreal, and Ottawa and the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.
