If you have been following the building and technology industry the past few years, it will come as no surprise to hear that Canada is a leader in smart cities. From coast to coast – literally – from Fredericton to Magog to Toronto to Stratford to Edmonton to Vancouver – Canadian cities and businesses are deploying some of the most advanced building systems in the world.
Update: Please find the full transcript from the Intelligent Communities TweetChat via Storify.
We must be doing something right. And we’d like to talk to you about it.
Join me and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities for a discussion about Canada, intelligent communities and technology on Friday, December 6 at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT. Taking place entirely on Twitter, we will be joined by Waterloo Mayor Brenda Halloran, Fredericton Mayor Brad Woodside, City of St. Albert Strategic and Intergovernmental Initiatives Manager Travis Peter and Federation of Canadian Municipalities Past-President Berry Vrbanovic in this interactive conversation.
